Venice RAS card

Last monday i had a great surprise in my mailbox. I got this beautiful Venice card as RAS sent by Irene "iside82". Thanks Irene for this beautiful card.
On the card we can see the Grand Canal and the Basilica di Santa Maria della Salute (Basilica of St Mary of Health/Salvation).
The basilica is "placed scenically at a narrow finger of land which lies between the Grand Canal and the Bacino di San Marco on the lagoon, visible as one enters the Piazza San Marco from the water. While it has the status of a minor basilica, its decorative and distinctive profile and location make it among the most photographed churches in Italy." - in: wikipedia
