Perfect pair: two cards, two colours

The challenge for City crafter 96 'perfect pair' is to make 2 cards identical, but with different colours, lilac and blue.

When I was having a crafty sort out recently I came across a box of Blocs by Art & Crafts Direct that I bought years ago - at that time I obviously thought it was a good idea to buy loads and loads of them, use a few and then leave them at the back of the cupboard. So I decided to use these for this challenge.

The flowers are habico held in the middle with tiny flower brads, sticky stitched ribbons from Hobbycraft  and sentiments from stash.

These are also for:

4 crafty chicks 77: let's double down - two of anything
Party time Tuesday 55: get well wishes
Moving along with the times: get well soon
Challenge up your life 63: get well soon
Playing in paradise 54: stitching
2 sisters 79: stitching
Cooking it up with Katie 89: a spooled metal sentiment
Little darlings 17: favourite embellishments - ribbons and flowers
Crafty catz 120: favourite things - ribbons and flowers

Totally papercrafts 104: ribbons
