PDCC#64 OLW#36 - Barely There

One Layer Wednesday - The reins this week are held by Jennifer Styles, "The challenge this week is to make a card using a bare tree, or bare vegetation of some kind – that means no leaves, no needles, no buds, no flowers. You can use as many images/sentiments/colours as you like, but you must use one plant image that is “bare”.  You can't scare me with that challenge!!  I have the perfect stamp - Tree Tile from Rubber Soul.
This week's Play Date Cafe Challenge colors seemed perfect for a "winter-y" card. My backyard is still covered in snow but the boys headed back to school today after two days off. Neither of them complained because they don't want to go to school in June!
Doncha love it when it is SO COLD that the snow sparkles like glitter?  SO COLD that the hair in your nose freezes up?  I love it too - while gazing out the window holding a nice big mug of coffee!
Sentiment is from the Vintage A Muse Clear Stamp Set.

I LOVE the way you stamped the tiles off each side! Wonderful way to showcase the colors and I agree, they are perfect for a wintry card :) So glad you joined us at The Play Date Cafe!

Love this card! You showed no fear and kicked the challenge's butt!
I must say, the freezing nose hair is something I definitely don't miss about not living in the US anymore!
