How to: choose a tie for a father

I have been a hard-working woman for last 2 weeks so I deserve a prize today: a crafty day! YAY!
Father's Day is just around the corner (23rd June in Poland), so I decided to make a male card.
I have been inspired with three CAS challenges:

The Play Date Cafe with their color challenge

The CASE Study challenge with their case it regular challenge

and an interesting challenge at The Fusion Card Challenge

Mixed all together and here's the result:
'How many ties could a man have?' is the same question as 'How many pairs of shoes is enough for a woman?' LOL To make these ties I used the scraps and cut them with scissors - easy-peasy.
I just popped them out with a 3D tape.
The sentiment says 'Best wishes' and this button is probably older than me - it's from my Mum's stash.
Elegant father deserves an elegant card, don't you think?

Apparently we have great minds that think alike. After I linked up my card for the Fusion challenge I went looking at the other entries and saw your card. Turns out ours are quite similar. LOL! So of course I like your card! :-).
