Vintage Sketch for Christmas

I havent had much time to play along with any challenges lately and I've missed making Christmas cards, so this card combines 2 Christmas challenges. The first one is the sketch from Merry Monday and the 2nd challenge is from Jingle Belles, which is to create a card with a vintage look.

I'm not really sure if I captured a vintage look...maybe more of a retro look? My husband said the reindeer on the paper look vintage but the colors of the card and embellishments remind him of the 80's, LOL. So maybe a retro-vintage look is what I've got going?

Supplies used(all supplies SU unless otherwise noted):
Stamps: none
Paper: Marina Mist, Pretty In Pink, Whisper White (inside card), paper from K & Company
Ink: none
Accessories: Chipboard from Fancy Pants Designs, brads(non-SU)
