Mojo Monday Challenge 204

This is my card for the Mojo Monday Challenge this week. I said to Jean that we should try this sketch and once again our cards are completely different. lol  Jean's card is on her blog.  At first this card gave me quite a bit of grief, yes, I know hard to believe when it's so simple but what I wanted to put in the middle just wouldn't work.  So this is what I ended up with.  I feel quite happy about this card now where as before I stamped on the twill and just used the world circle as the centre, it was going in the bin.
My Dad loves fishing and boats so this card is for him on the 4th September, our Father's Day here in Australia.
Hope everyone has had a fabulous day.  Thanks for visiting my blog.
