80th Birthday Cards

I have been asked to make an 80th birthday card for a gentleman that likes poppies. Thankfully I have been asked to make cards because with everything going on I have lost my mojo.

I have matt and layered my 8x8in white card with red, black and white card.

I cut the poppies using a die I had free with a magazine.

I die cut the Fabulous at 80 with Tonic dies. I printed the sentiment and die cut it with a die from a Spellbinders nesting set and used the next size die in the set to cut a shape to mount the sentiment before adding it to my card.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
