A friendly hello

Hello everyone.  Friday-yay!
I made another card for the Moxie Fab World die cutting challenge and this one also qualifies for the City Crafter "Back to Black" challenge to incorporate a black  silhouette (I stamped my fern frond directly onto the patterned paper).
For the die cutting part, I started with this long Cuttlebug tag die.  I cut out one in black and one other in the patterned paper and trimmed it down a slight 1/8th" all around, then sewed together with black thread.  I sewed the edges of the front panel directly to the card and then stamped the silhouette.
I used an alphabet die also from Cuttlebug and cut out the letters on some chipboard coasters and then cut out the letters again with various patterned papers.  I adhered them to the chipboard with glue and then to the tag.  I used this big button that I had in my stash (BoBunny I think)and threaded it with some silk floss.  The silk floss was quite slippery and I didn't think that the knot would hold, so I placed a dab of glue on top of the knot and sprinkled with MS black glitter.  the tag was placed onto dimensional foam and I placed it over another die cut I made using my Spellbinders eyelet square die and I stamped a PTI bold hello onto the top portion, positioning it so that the bottom part of the white cut die shape would peek out of the bottom.
That's it for now...
