Postcards influence Arts and Crafts, Thank You notes - universal designs

Here is the back of a postcard displaying a beautifully drawn rose.  I am always looking for ideas for embroidery, something that might be more original than a commercial designs.  I scanned the postcard, then transferred the design to muslin and stitched away.  Either I will frame it or sew it into a lavender sachet.

Postcards are often used as graphic designs for Business Cards, Thank you notes etc.  I received some wonderful magazines called Shabby Lane Shops ( mailed thru  See how Debi has a postcard image on her Thank You notes.
Postcards have many uses.

This is Blog challenge number 5 and it has been fun.  Thanks again to  Now to read everybodys blog!

Great idea! I often have postcards that are prettier on the back than on the front.
