House of Cards May Challenge

Welcome to the House of Cards May Challenge!
 The current challenge is
Shaped Card and/or Colors

Inspired by the colour swatch I made this shaped card:

I was made a card similar to this by a friend many years ago - and it suddenly came to mind!
I started with a strip of blue card 4 inches by 9inches and scored it at 1.5 inch intervals.
I folded it back and forth and then added washi tape (from Paperchase) along each strip.

I added blue ribbon under the washi on one end - this is used to tie the card together.
I then turned to my 'go to' die set for 'flames' - Reverse Confetti's Paisley. 
I used scraps from my stash to cut these and attached them as shown.

Finally from another snippet I cut the sentiment - a die from Tonic's ATC collection.

I will link this to Pixie's Snippets Challenge #325

Hope you will have a look at all the brilliant inspiration from my teamies and join in the challenge!!

Happy Crafting!
