Angels and Demons at Try it on Tuesday

Hi You all!
The new challenge at TioT is 'Angels and Demons'. The challenge runs for two weeks, so you have plenty of time to let your creative juices flow. 
I made a swing card using cardstock from Kaisercraft and an image from  a Gecko Galz collage sheet, 'The cat's meow'.
The card has two sides which you can turn about - one shows the 'demon' and the other the 'angel',
I found this nice quote today, but don't know who it from:
'Sometimes I wrestle with my inner demons and other times we just hug and dance.'

And these are the little envelopes I made for the ATCs I showed yesterday, and they are now on their way to Marion, who organised the swap. The little 'castles' have been stamped and then painted with sparkling H2Os

The front:

and the back

And 'Die Amelie' is having a blog candy to celebrate her 1 year anniversary. You can read all about it here. She has a wonderful candy up for grabs - this is the mouth watering image!
Congratulations Claudia!

Have a great day you all, take care and thanks a lot for visiting!

  14. Liebe Valerie ! Du hast so wudnervolle Sachen gemacht in den letzten Tagen!

    ich bin nur so froh, dass sie es endlich überstanden hat!

  15. I love coming to your blog Valerie - it always seems to charge my batters! To be honest - I think this lady is a demon. You can tell by her eyes and I am not sure she has anything on other than feathers!!!!
    Love your envelopes.

  16. What a fabulous card. That image is perfect for this challenge. And your ATC look amazing my friend.


  17. Valerie, was für eine schöne Karte! Die junge Dame ist ein gutes Beispiel dafür, beides sein zu können, Engel und Teufel.
    Auch deine Umschläge zu den ATCs sind klasse geworden. Du hast eine tolle Handschrift, weißt du das?

  18. Hi Valerie, Fabulous card, Love the dimension,colors and how you used the fab image of Louise Brooks (She is one of my favorite flappers). I also like all the pretty little envelopes, such a great idea.
