FabScraps Elegant Chic - Wedding Card

FabScraps Elegant Chic is NOW Available

The FabScraps team just announced that this much-awaited collection has finally reached the warehouse.  Yeah for that joyful news because this is a peaceful beautiful collection.   It has a beautiful soft pink and gray combination with an elegant appeal - thus the fitting name, "Elegant Chic"".

I was heading to a wedding so I thought the new collection would be a perfect fit. 

The chipboard heart is such a statement piece.  Its FabScraps chipboard  DC71003 and it is so beautiful.  I simply coated it with aged antique embossing powder.

I tucked in Prima flowers here and there as my accent pieces.
You will find a complete detailed set of instructions at the end of this post.
