Thank you display card

Hello my friends! I have one more project to share with you on this week. Estonian Red Cross was really kind and gave free school bags filled with notebooks, pencils etc, to the kids in our parish. My boss wanted to send a thank you card to the Red Cross. So I made one

Sentiment: Some moments are more beautiful then other,
some moments are really, really beautiful

This gorgeous image is from Beccy's Place called Roses and Pears. I colored it with Promarkers and added several layers on top of it. I haven't played with Beccy's images a long time. I missed it.
The sentiment is printed to vellum. These words are actually a song lyrics by Jaan Tätte. The song title is "Ilus hetk" (Beautiful moment).

I added some stickles to the roses and butterflies. I also played with Frantage again (love this stuff). 
Image layer is attached with brad so it slides off. I didn't had any white brads, so I covered light green brad with Versamark ink and heat embossed with white EP.

 Thank you words and good wishes are hidden behind the pears and roses. I clued a tiny ribbon behind the image, it will make easier to move the image layer (although it's not necessary, if card is tilt a bit, the image layer slides off and reveal the message)

 I wanted to make this card the way it would be easy to display. It has a little stand clued behind the card.

  1. This card is just lovely. I especially like the swinging window.....may I copy that? I'd also like to know if the card opens in the usual fashion? Again, this is a lovely design.

    1. Thank you, Sandy. Of course you can copy it :) This card won't open in the usual fashion. That's why I made a stand behind it. I like to make something different time to time.

  2. Gorgeous card Eret. Love how you've put the little stand on it too. The circular opening is really neat!

  10. Eret, you always have something new up your sleeve. Not only is your "swinging" pear panel intriguing, but the intricate details using the vellum pieces, frontage, and fussy cut layers -- all are just amazing and make for a breath-taking masterpiece! The Red Cross will LOVE this card and have it on display for a very long time. Perfect easel for the card to stand up. Lovely! (I still can believe you fussy-cut those roses! wowser!)

  11. Wow! This card is stunning Eret, absolutely gorgeous! You did an amazing job colouring the images and then layering them all together. I love the swinging panel and the hidden message underneath. Just beautiful!
