Fun card, although I dreaded it because I've never made one of these before. I had to rig up or engineer the sentiment behind the top layer to slide in and out, I used brads to stop it from coming out, and made two 90 degree 'legs' on the far end of the sentiment. This catches onto the brad legs so the paper doesn't slide out all the way.
Notice the teeny tiny hand drawn stitching around the sentiment :D

Oh, tell me all about trying to rig things up! I once had the great idea I could make a card like an old valve radio with an arrow pointing to different sentiments instead of stations, rolls eyes. So I really appreciate the trouble you took to get your super sentiment pulling out just the right amount and not too far.
I'm blown away by all the different types of cards people have made for this challenge. I love your little fabric and button look flower - just right for combining with the stitching on your sentiment. And a matching envelope too :D. You rock.
