This month the design team at Ann Butler Designs has showcased a variety of projects using fabric. Ann Butler's products are designed to be used on fabric and other mixed media projects. Today I'm sharing a card using lace and ribbon, Ann Butler's Crafter's Inks and Art Screens by Clearsnap.

I have a step by step tutorial for you at the Ann Butler Design's blog. Please click here to check it out! Once you're there I invite you to take a minute to see all the different projects my teammates have created using fabric.

Thanks so much for stopping by today! I will be back with a new design tomorrow. See you then!
