Craft Your Passion #148: Announcement and New Challenge!

Well I have an announcement for you all...I am now a permanent part of the Craft Your Passion Design Team!  I loved working with them so much as a Guest Design Team member than I applied for a permanent spot and was chosen!  Thanks Ladies! 
So here we are with a new challenge for the week: Challenge #148...Pastels, no dark colors.
This week we are sponsored by The Digi Garden.  It is with a heavy heart that we have to inform you that the owner of this online store passed away last week.  Jacqui you will be missed and to her family and friends, I will keep you all in my prayers.  I pray that you find peace in this sadness.
I love the image that I got to work with this week.  Little Joe of on his Fishing Trip is just SO CUTE!
I decided that since it's almost Valentine's Day, I would have Joe fishing a candy heart out of the sea.  And what is the sea made of???  Buttons of course! 
Hope you all enjoy my card.  Please head on over to the Craft Your Passion blog to see what the other members of the design team are up to today!  I know you are going to love all of their cards as well!
I am also linking this card up to Card Making Mamas blog for their LOVE challenge!  Play along and you could win all 10 images we used this week!  WOW!
