An Origami Daddy's Card

This is the 3rd or last Father's Day Creation I made.  This one, I'm giving to my dad on Father's Day, 5 days from now though I still have to write a dedication at the back of the card.  

I have been a fan of Origami when I was a child (and so I thought I was).  In fact, I had an Origami booklet kit which I used to play with before.  I thought I have grown away from Origami only to find out that it's good also in my newly found hobby which is scrapbooking.  So, here I am with an Origami Shirt & Tie creation for my Dad:
