Seeing Triple

Keep it Simple has the fun challenge of Three.  So I added 3 WMS Simple Sprigs to this Congratulations card I made for a friend.  Of course once I had added 3 sprigs I had to add 3 of the roses to each sprig in 3 different colours.   I only hope this card still qualifies for Simple.

I used the sketch from CAS Challenge #95, and added a Memory Box Tessatina strip to ground the sprigs and added the gorgeous Clearly Besotted Word Die Congrats for the sentiment.

As an afterthought, I added Royal Coat to each of the roses.  Disaster struck of course as is often the case when dealing with sticky things and afterthoughts, and the Royal Coat ran off one of the roses and was spreading across the lower part of the card.  I cleaned the resulting mess up as best I could but in the end I used a Sizzix Mini Butterfly to hide said mess.  This Royal Coat takes ages to dry.  You may notice some of the roses are still milky.  They should be perfectly clear by this afternoon though (I hope) !!!

Here's a side view so you can see the effect of the Royal Coat.  I added glitter to the butterfly while it was still wet and some crystals down the length of the body.  I only did this this morning so it's still very wet and hence milky - again should be clear by this afternoon.

Here's the whole card

Since I've used Waltzing Mouse Stamps and cut files, I'm also entering this card in WMS Fanatics Challenge #28 which is Anything Goes.
