Sympathy cards needed again

Happy Memorial Day (a day early)!  As a military brat, I will always have the Army running through my blood.  Say a prayer for those individuals who are serving our great country and fighting for our freedom. 

Unfortunately I had to make sympathy cards sad.  I really liked the layout that I had used before on a sympathy card so decided to use it again.  This time around I changed the cardstock colors and the main stamped image.  The stamps are still from the same set, Stampin' Up! Thoughts and Prayers.

The card below uses Old Olive cardstock and designer paper.  Nestabilities oval and circle dies were used to cut out the tree and sentiment.

For my other sympathy card I used Mellow Moss cardstock and designer paper.  Accessories used were a corner rounder and the Nestabilities circle die for the sentiment.  I used the automatic picture adjuster on this photo and it seems a bit bright, especially compared to the my other picture.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have safe and fun holiday weekend.
