A Couple of Contrasting Sympathy Cards

I made a couple of sympathy cards this weekend that I'd like to share with you.  They are both for the same couple, but one is from a women's club that the wife is a member of and the other is from a "Cowboy" Sunday School class of which they are both members.  See if you can figure out which is which!

This card is made with scraps!  The bottom layer is a burlap paper from the Paper Studio and the next layer and the banner are scraps of paper I printed from Cricut.  The banner is also a Cricut cut.  The horse is a sticker from Karen Foster Designs, mounted on a scrap of cream paper and inked.  The sentiment is made with Cricut's "Baby Steps fonts and welded, cut from the same cream paper scrap then inked.  I added a little bit of  sisal rope and inside I used a Stampabilities stamp that says "I thought of you today".

This card is made with scraps and freebies!  The stamp is from the latest issue of "Cardmaking and Papercraft" magazine, colored with Spectrum Noir markers.  The embossing folder is from the same issue and the printed paper is a freebie from an older issue.  Have I ever mentioned that I love that magazine?!?!  I lightly inked the edges of the white piece to really make the beautiful embossing stand out.  A little hand-tied sheer ribbon double bow and it's finished!

Thanks for stopping by and I think I'll see if I can join a few challenges this week.
