It's sorbet all the way

I'm having a raspberry and lemon sorbet day today I think. Well, the colours of this card remind me of sorbet anyway. Sweet.
This is my Pixie Cottage DT card where today we have a sketch and a theme. I've used the sketch and loosely embellished on it (just can't help myself sometimes) and the other optional part is a theme of LOVE. The image I've used is Whispering Maisy and Matt by Di Carubia.

I'm entering this into the following challenges:
2 Sisters - Flowers
AI Factory - Anything Goes
Crafty Ann's - Ring in the new but don't ring out the old (New - Flowers, Old - Butterfly Punch)
Lexi's Creations - Say it 'With Love'
One Stitch At A Time - New (My new items are: New flowers, New cotton candy Stickles, new heart nesties)
Paperplay Challenges - Cutie Patootie
Paper Playtime - Use the word Love
Pile It On - Anything Goes
Polycraft- Pastel Colours
Really Reasonable Ribbons - Heart Theme
Secret Crafter - With Love
Simply Create - Use your punches
Speedy The Cat's - Use Hearts
SSDS - Anything Goes
Stamp Something - Anything Goes
Tellen's Place - Let's see some ribbon
Wags n Whiskers - With Love
Wee Memories - Use Ribbon

I still haven't found my real camera so I took some closer images in the hope that it'd pick up some of the detail on the card.

I'm afraid these may be a bit out of focus, but perhaps the impression is there of some of the glitzy bits and the dimension. I do hope so.

I hope you'll join in with the challenge this week. Remember you don't have to use both the theme and the sketch - one or the other is more than good enough to enter.
The talented design team have made some incredibly varied creations this week - all to an incredibly high standard and so beautiful to look at. Please hop over to view them all.

Thanks for looking,
Sharon xx
