Poppies for Remembrance Sunday

Today is Remembrance Sunday and Tuesday will be Armistice Day,  the days when we remember the sacrifice made by our Forces over the last hundred years. The symbol of remembrance, of course, is the poppy, so today I've made a poppy themed card.

The stamp itself was from a grab bag of unmounted rubber (I haven't seen grab bags on offer for years, are they still around? I used to find some real gems in them) so I don't know the brand or image name, just that it's about 15 years old and has been a firm favourite for all that time.

I raided my bits box for the rest of the materials - apart from the base card, everything is made from those too-nice-to-part-with buts from previous projects. In the case of the poppy printed paper, it's been there ever since I started my bits box!
