Bloomin 'eck!

This week it's Lythan's turn to set the dare over on Daring Card Makers:

SUPERSIZE ME!I have loads of enormous paper flowers that I have bought and never used. So I want to see some really big embellishments on your cards. Bonus points for outsize blooms!

I have loads of big blooms so I had to join in with this one. Here's the finished card:

Flowers from Dunelm Mill
K&Co Amy Butler Paper
Felt ric rac from Paper-and-string
Ticket made using Photoshop and a sizzix die
Lace and pin from my local market

I also made another flowery card:
Basic Grey paper
Coffee cup liner
Ticket as before
Papermania flowers
Dovecraft brads
Ribbon from stash

And finally, I've finished my felt purse from the pattern Sarah kindly shared over at Paper-and-String's blog:
