Have seen similar cards in a recent Paper Crafts magazine and by Joy Taylor and wanted to give a paper strip card a try. I used resist emboss to make the various colored papers. Hero Arts Zig Zag CG422 Hero Arts Magical Background CG211 Hero Arts Cling Dots CG139 Hero Arts Wish Big CL576 Hero Arts dye ink Ranger Distress Inks Versamark ink + clear embossing powder Neenah Solar White cardstock
On this card I would make the floral panel smaller, so that it fits to the edge of the dotted DP panel. To me it would just sit better. You could do this in other muted colours too & change the sentiment to a sympathy one if you wanted to.
