Cuttlebug Mania Challenge "Golden Harvest"

Today we have a new challenge over at Cuttlebug Mania.
This time we want you to make a project
with fruit, berries or anything of the goodies
from garden and nature.
Please read our guidelines on the blog!
Again and again we get wonderful cards,
but unfortunately they were made with electric machines!
And please tell us what products you have used on your project,
how you used your non electric machine!

Here is my DT card.
I used:
Double card A6, creme;
Green paper for the mat;
Yellow and orange scrap papers;
Image: "Basket with Oranges" from one of our sponsors, Beccy;
Doily: Lifestyle Crafts, Glass: Marianne Design, Orange: Spellbinders Circle;
Tiny flower punch: EK Success;
Rhine stone, brown pen, red and brown distress ink.

I also want to take place here:


Det er ikke ofte jeg hekler.
Men av og til er det morsomt
å bytte ut Cuttlebug og strikkepinner med heklenålen.
Og slike enkle brikker til å ha under kaffe- eller tekrus,
er det alltid bruk for.

Ocean Colors Birthday Card

Usually I try to make all my embellishments
and other stuff for my cards myself.
I love my Cuttlebug, and I use it for almost every card.
But today I found something among my old stash
that I wanted to use on this card.
The challenge from Seize the Birthday is "Ocean Colors",
and I thought this tiny bit of a yarn could fit for that challenge.
Also the two biggest parts of the flower I found there.
The smallest one is a scrap. I cut it with an EK Success punch.
The flower got a half pearl as well.
Banner: Marianne Design die.
Stamp: Big Time Zürich.

Scrap papers (snippets) of different papers;
All images: Beccy Muir;
