In Sympathy

 It's Labor Day today, and I can't figure out where the summer has gone.  Kids are back in school, we're fast losing daylight, and days are much cooler.  There are signs of autumn everywhere.  Life moves so fast!

I needed 2 sympathy cards last week.  Hard week, for sure!  I reverted to two of my go-to digital images to make them with.  They're from Eureka Stamps. They go together quickly because all it takes is a bit of ink and some pretty papers:

This uses ES-digi34502 (Tree Losing Leaves) and ES-digi4505 In Sympathy.  

Here's a 2nd card using the same inking technique:

I used Tim Holtz Distress Oxide inks and a few sequins by Close To My Heart.  The designer papers are by We Are 3 Digital Shop.  The first card uses the Howdy Autumn papers. The 2nd card uses the Paisley Texture papers

I'm entering these cards in the following challenges:
D.L. Art -- Sympathy
D.L. Art -- September Linky Party
Angie's Digital Stamps -- Use Fall colors
AUD Sentiments -- Sympathy
