Remembrance Day poppies for Polkadoodles challenge 45

 Today 11 November was Remembrance Day - 75 years since the end of world war 2 and I stopped for the minutes silence at 11 am.   My father didn't go to the war as he was working in essential services.  He worked at the Woolen Mills where they made the cloth for the soldiers uniforms.  If he had gone to war I wouldn't be here as I was born 7 months before the war ended.

Polkadoodles has a free stamp set In rembrance poppies and I have made a card for Polokadoodles challenge week 45 - anything goes

I have used 2 We are 3 papers from Roses are Red paper set
Precoloured digi stamp and sentiment from Polkadoodles In Remembrance Poppies set (in the set you receive the coloured digi stamp and black and white digi stamps and 12 sentiments.

I followed sketch No 580 at Tuesday morning sketches so I would like to add my card to that challenge (I used a rectangle instead of the circle to fit my stamp)

I would also like to add my card to the following:
