Today's Ways to Use It challenge is about thankfulness in general, or thanks and appreciation for veterans. Here in Britain, the poppy is a symbol of support and thanks for veterans, so I stamped a poppy image twice on red cardstock, sponged the edges with red ink, and popped up the top layer. I used a white gel pen and black gems for the flower center.

the poppy is the same here in the US. The vets used to make the little paper poppies to give away but it's getting harder to have that happen because so many of the WWII vets are gone. Lovely tribute to them.
