Woodland Stag

I've been having fun with my Imagination Crafts Starlight paints again, creating a background for this gorgeous stag die cut, which is also from Imagination Crafts.  It's one of my favourite Christmas dies and it cuts like a dream, I've used textured gold card today.
 To create the background, I used three colours of Starlight paint, Amethyst, Cyclamen, and Gold, which I blobbed onto a craft mat, spritzed with water and swirled my card through.  The photo doesn't do it justice, you just can't capture the sparkle of the crushed gilding flakes in these paints in a photo.  I got a nice, large A4 sheet made so I've got some left over for other projects.
I kept the rest of the card simple to showcase the large topper, layering up some pretty Lili of the Valley Woodland Wishes papers, and adding some lace, ribbon with a matching double bow, some large plum coloured pearls, and some gold gems to the snowflakes.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges -
Merry Christmas Challenge - #3 - Use a Die Cut
