Coffee Date with Robyn and Eileen

Hey there !!
Welcome to Robyn's Nest!!
I am so excited to be having a coffee date with my long time friend Eileen Mathys!
Eileen and I met through a couple Facebook stamping groups. Eileen was admin in Stamping Addicts and was always so nice and helpful to me. Wasn't long before we were chatting daily about everything stamping, and beyond!!
Eileen's CAS style amazes me. She knows exactly when to stop, and let the card be.
Something I have a hard time pulling off (I've tried) ;)

Eileen and I decided on a color inspiration

Here is what inspired us!!
Gorgeous color pallet, don't you think?

For my card, as usual I started with Papertrey Ink Stamper's Select White Cardstock, as my base, cutting it lengthwise at 4 1/4, and scoring it at 5 1/2' and folding..
 below is the link
Lucky for me, I had all these colors in my Stampin Up stash!!
 I cut the first layer with my absolute favorite die set from Super Sponsor Waffle Flower called Lacy Layers 2
I used Unity Stamp Company's stamp from their Uniquely Unity line of monthly release stamp clubs.
This gorgeous stamp is called Flutters To Go

I stamped on water color paper
 then I took each marker and squiggled a line of ink onto my mat
 Using a water brush pen to pick up the ink, I colored the image. 
Using another die from my stash, I angled the die, and cut.
Then I started layering the card stock
I wrapped a strip of ribbon that matched, and added the flowers from Petaloo
A bow made with seam binding in white! I love using seam binding as ribbon, all crinkly and pretty easy to tie... 
That is it for me!
I can't wait for you to jump over to see Eileen's card!

Thanks for stopping by

Inky Hugs, Robyn
