A swooshed and a one layer card

Hi everyone, I am up with 2 cards today. Actually I have many cards to share, and a bit busy, yesterday was subbing so no time at all. Today also have to step out for a lunch with a friend, but thought of putting 2 cards in a post, and will see if I have time to post something else. A win at CASEplorations made my day this morning, YAY so happy.

The first one up is a card with swooshed background.
I used distressed inks stormy sky, dusty concord, and Victorian velvet, and dabbed on the surface and sprayed some mist, and pressed my card against it. I love the background, the effect looks like marble, I do marble nails so these colors are on my list now ..LOL.
Ok, I added a purple panel to frame the background, and I used a pattern pattern to die cut hte houses from Paper Smooches. I decided to leave some of the windows in, just for fun.  The sentiment is from Words to Rescue.

Going with just the colors, might add another entry with flowers.


The second one is a simple one layer card. I had used a textured vanilla base for this. I used the stamps from Hero Arts - things to love, and stamped the flowers in purple shade of chalk ink from versamark, and the leaves using pear pizzaz. I decided not to add any embellishments to this.
