Accordion style card

http://joannasheenchallenge.blogspot.co.uk/2013/06/dont-be-square.htmlHi there thanks for visiting
Saw some cards similar in blog land did a bit of searching and discovered they were made with a bigz die. Now I do not have the set of 2 dies,so had a play cutting up bits of paper and getting into a sticky mess, but this is what I came up with.http://craftybootschallenges.blogspot.co.uk/2013/06/anything-but-square.html

Fabbie picked as card of the month crafters companion and also picked as a cupcake cutie
 now here is what I did.
I used the shape on my ultimate board by crafters companion. For this card I cut 4 of the shapes leaving a small lip down the edge of 3 pieces so I could join the shapes together also cut out the inside.  Once I had decorated the frames I joined the inner sections together with small strips of card.I attached only the 2 outside inner shapes to the frame with ribbon. Sorry I know this doesn't make much sense.
I used cordinations and papermania paper,angelica image ,tag and greeting from inspiration paper pack,crafts too flourish die and craft work cards flowers and candi.
Whoooo it took abit of making and I hadn't planned on a no 2 but have already started on it 
Thanks for looking angxx
