A Gem of an Antique Postcard for September

We love a good postcard here at the Studio! And isn't this a beauty? I found this one at the local Antiques & Collectibles hotspot I've mentioned here before. Sorry about the lateness! It got forgotten during recent weeks, and was only just dug out of the archives for you. You know what they say--better late than never! ;)
Anyway, here it is. The reverse is so simple, and yet quite messy, that it really cannot be improved upon well enough for posting. We apologize for that as well. Later on in the month, we hope to offer you the rose vine border on its own, in our jewel tone set for you. 
For the bejeweled  lower portion, you can go HERE. Till then, we hope you'll enjoy its look as is.
Happy Creativity!

pchickki: Thanks for stopping by! I felt lucky as can be when I first spotted this treasure. It really reminds one of a different era, a time when every flower, gem stone, or even tree, carried meaning for the observer.
It's got a lot of potential, I think, for crafting.
