My lovely friend, De Arn (and member of my team) was the one that clinched the positioning of the 'glass' terrarium as I thought far right would be the best spot; that was until I discovered I liked the addition of card-in-a-box style inserts for this fold to create a more 3D, pop-up element.
It's always good to get away for a weekend. Hubby and I regularly escape and find somewhere relaxing to unwind from our busy and often stressful jobs (he's a Medical Scientist and I'm a School Principal). When I venture out I'm always seeing inspiration everywhere that I can take back to my craft room (another good place to get 'lost in'). Here's a photo of the view from The Trig at Lilydale where we stayed back in early autumn. It had lots of cute pots of succulents on the verandah, inside the quirky style of accommodation and on the outdoor setting (pictured). At the time I was tempted to buy some stamps with images of succulents from another company but I was so pleased that I waited to see what the new catty would bring and it certainly did not disappoint!
So ... the inspiration for this card came from a weekend away in the country and 'kudos' to the design artists at Stampin' Up! who came up with this gorgeous stamp set -
