Attached are images of the front and back of the travel card for Gertrud Torkelsdotter.  I found this is the Attachment to Migration Records for Brandstad 1778-1810.

I got this translated to English but I have a few questions about how to interpret this.
Here is the translation to English.

Number 72. The maid Giertrud Torckelsdotter
Is born 1762 in Frenninge parish and Harrarp village
Came year 1782 from Branstad
And now moves to Bransta village back.
Reads in book reasonably well
Recites Dr. Luther's catechism with questions well
recites "Ath.Symb." and "Hustaflan" likewise
recites Dr. Svebelius' Explanations somewhat
and understands in a simple manner.
Attended examination last the 21st of this [month].
The Sacred Communion taken last today.
Is to her manner of living decent.
To marriage free from promises.
Certificate of Kierstorp the 8th September 1783.
[signed]

That Gerdro Torgelsdatter has been employed by me from New Year 1784 in/until(?) Melkelt(??) in Denmark,
and during this time behaved calmly and ???.
Kongens Lyngbye the 6th Ostober 1784
[signed]

It appears that she arrived in Brandstad in 1782.  Then she appears to be coming back to Brandstad from Kierstorp  in 1783.  Whre is Kierstorp?  Then there is a note about working in Lyngbye Denmark in 1784.   I guess she left again and came back from Denmark.  There is also a note on the back which is too hard to read.  This seems like a lot of traveling on one card.  Am I interpreting this correctly? What does "To marriage free from promises." mean?
The "behaved calmly" comment in the note about Denmark seems a bit strange.  Can anyone make out what it says on the back?
Thanks.

Picked some of your questions.

Whre is Kierstorp?
Kiertorp is most likely the parish Östra Kärrtorp, a few miles north of Brandstad.

What does "To marriage free from promises." mean?
It means that she have not given any promises regarding marriage to a man, so she is free to marriage.

The note about her behaving is a standard note for a person who lives a peaceful life and doesn't make a lot of "noice", just mind her own business.

Melkelt(??)
Might be S:t Michaels day, "Mickelsmäss" (oct 3 1784) when employed were free to get a new job.

Hope I cleared out som e of your question marks.

Thank you.  That does help.   It just seems strange that it mentions her working in Denmark.  Would there be any way to confirm that she was there?

I agree. Maybe just saving paper??

There should be similar records, as for Sweden, in Denmark. I have no knowledge about the records in Denmark since I have no ancestors or relatives there.

Kongens Lyngby is today a part of northern Copenhagen.

Here is a link to danish archives
