I live quite close to the military town of Aldershot, so Remembrance Day is quite a big thing here, and of course a lot of forces veterans have settled in the area. So poppy themed sympathy cards are very popular, especially as those who served in the World Wars get older.
This card has the poppy theme and also a background paper of postcards from other countries, to reflect the fact that the serviceman may have served almost anywhere in the world.
The poppy stamp is an umounted stamp that I got in a grab bag when I first started stamping, about 25 years ago. I coloured them in with Promarkers using very delicate strokes because of the fine detail.
The paper, too, is very old. It's a K&Company one - I think it was called Life's Journey - and is probably around 20 years old. The sentiment is a clear sticker.
