Christmas Ornament - Frantaged

Good morning.
It looks like it's going to be a dull damp miserable day here today - but only weather wise :o)
Jack and I are going to the cinema this afternoon to see Monsters University - I remember the first Monsters Inc. from 2001 - Jack was only 3 1/2 and he loved it - hopefully he'll love this one just as much :o)

Today I'm here to share a non-DT card and I have been continuing on with some Christmas makes.
 I love my new Spellbinders Heirloom Ornaments 2011 dies and my favourite scrummy Frantage:

I die cut the largest of the ornament dies and then embossed it with Couture Creations 'Tied Tigether' embossing folder. Edges inked with Walnut Stain Distress Ink and then sprinkled with Shabby White Frantage.
Background embossed with Papermania Snowflake embossing folder and edges inked with Walnut Stain and then sprinkled with Shabby White Frantage also.
Sentiment from Pink Gem Designs - 'Christmas Circle Sentiments Set 2' 
Snowflakes: Spellbinders Create a Flake and Martha Stewart Punch
Adhesive Pearls and Mini Bow from stash
