Mojo Monday 194 - Father's Day Card

I'm a little nervous about sharing my take on this week's Mojo Monday sketch.  The sketch was my inspiration, so I think it's ok for me to link my card.  It just isn't the most literal sketch interpretation.  Anyway, those of you who visit can let me know if my card resembles the sketch enough to "count".  Here they are side-by-side:

I've got the four panels going on, and the points of the ties look a little like the scallop border.  I used the horizontal band, but no ribbon on top... and the scallop circle got toned down to the button with ribbon.

The four panels made me think of the tie stamp that's from the Wonderful Friend Stamp set.  I stamped three Outdoor Denim ties on Outdoor Denim cardstock, and then stamped one on an old piece of School Zone patterned paper and flipped it over so the stripes would show.

I liked having the "One of a kind" tie on top of the sentiment band, and it's popped up with some dimensional adhesive.  I manufactured the sentiment from the Chairs To You Stamp Set and the Pennant Alphabet.

I tied some ribbon through one of those new buttons to add the finishing touch.  All products are Close To My Heart.  So what do you think?  Can you see the sketch in my card??
