As you can see my design using this stamp set is in the colour purple! Do you know why?

Well, I like to think out of the box sometimes and I did not want to do a classic red poppy. Therefore, I researched the poppy to find alternative colours and what they may represent. Of course, a red poppy is very symbolic of loss of precious lives during the wars, so when I saw that the purple poppy is to remember animal victims of war, then of course that was a no brainer for me...purple poppy it was going to be!

I am an avid animal lover. Animals like horses, dogs and pigeons were often drafted into the war effort, and those that wear the purple poppy feel their service should be seen as equal to that of the human service. In particular, many horses were killed or injured in World War One.

Therefore, my card is dedicated to the animal victims of war 💜





I hope my design as given you some inspiration today?
