Monochromatic Vintage Christmas Card

I've used the sketch from "Sketch N Stash" as inspiration for my design.
I've kept to a color scheme with brown and beige tones and went for a vintage inspired look.
I've used a Spellbinder die to make a frame for the image, which is cut out from design paper.
For the sentiment I've used a rubber stamp from Panduro, and I've used dies to cut out the snowflakes.
All elements have been inked with "old paper" Distress Ink. I've also used some brown lace.

This card is entered in the following challenges:
1) Sketch and Stash - Sketch (Neglected stash used: brown lace)
