Magi by Starlight

I had my Starlight paints out to create the background for this card, it sparkles so much more in reality than the camera can capture.
I splodged Amethyst, Cyclamen and Antique Gold  Starlight paints, from Imagination Crafts, onto a craft mat and moved them around with a piece of kitchen towel, then spritzed with water and swirled a sheet of Sheena Stamping Card through the paint a few times to pick it up.  Once dry you have the most beautiful shimmery, sparkly, swirly backing paper.
 The design on the front of the card was made with a Create a Card die from Crafter's Companion, which I borrowed from my friend, Donna.  It's huge and embosses beautiful detail into the design which hasn't been captured at all well in the photos.
I decided to add no embellishment at all to this one, leaving the lovely die cut and sparkly paints to speak for themselves, simply matting the image onto black card and lilac and soft gold satin board.
 I'm entering this card in the following challenges -
