Good morning and Pinch, Punch first of the month.....
So that means that there is a new Challenge over at the Clarity Challenge Blog....the theme this month is Winter....
And this is my Design Team card,

I used Linen card and PanPastels, as you know I do love my Pans...
The deer stamps are from the Clarity remountable Forest set and I stamped them in Versafine ink....Vintage Sepia....then coloured them with watercolour pencils....

The blossom and birds are from the remountable English Garden Elements set of stamps....I do like to mix my stamps ...don't you? 
To seal my Pans and give a winters dawn feel, I sprayed my work with Iridescent Spray and Sparkle...
A bit of matting and layering, some ribbon and a lovely poinsettia from Sweet Lilac paper flowers...and job done....
There are some fabulous creations from the other DT, ....even a snow globe so do pop over and have a look....
I am so proud to have been asked to join this DT and do hope that you will join in the Challenge too....
Crafty Hugs....Jo.x
