Hello everyone, Adriana here, and today I have created some Sympathy cards with the new release BLUES BY YOU collection. The papers of this collection have some wondeful flowers elements but also some pretty pattern and images which would be great for any themes especially for masculine theme projects.

I decided to make some SYMPATHY  cards, created with the Sympathy die cut and stamp set and HELLO die cut and stamp set from the Blues By You collection. Also adding some die cut leaves which were cut with the vellum papers and fuzzy cut some vellum butterflies. I am so loving the colours in the Blues By You collection ,hope you like my cards. !
