Hello again to you all & a very warm welcome to Challenge 17 brought to
 you by Design Team member Amy Voorthuis from The Netherlands. 

Amy loves fairies as you can see!  
Her work is always shabby & romantic so it's no surprise that her mood board
 is so fantastically feminine!  There is still plenty to be inspired from for a masculine
 take though - just think metal, filigree & embossing & of course - cogs & gears!! 
This is my take one the mood board: 


 I couldn't help using BoBunny papers again the flowers are totally handmade I hope to do a tutorial on the SATW blog very soon!
As per always, we have 5 wonderful merit-based prizes for you this month
 & one random prize which can be won by ANYONE ANYWHERE.

Fur Ever Friends: 

Everyday the four of us talk a hugh walk in the near by park our puppy Fibi is loving those walks because she can walk without a leech!
 A little closer:


  
This picture I took a couple of weeks ago just before Fibi fell in the cold water!
I'm into making fabric flowers at the moment the top layer of the flower with the paw print center I made myself it's super easy I will try & post a tutorial on my blog asap.

I used some gorgeous papers by Graphic 45 & beautiful lace and flowers by Tresors de Luxe 

A little closer:

I also used some of Lindy's Stamp Gang  sprays because with this layout I want to enter their monthly challenge!
I was inspired by the pink & blue colors in the palette.




 I don't own that much sprays & embossing powders.....that hugh flower with the pearl in the middle I made myself using the Starburst Creme Brulee Cream {in love with that one}
I also used
-  Glitz Spritz Sunset Pink
