Owl card set

Today I have a set of cards to share. They are mini sized 2.5x3.5 and to make these cards I used mainly recycled items.

I cut the owls out using Gypsy Wanderings and my Expression and Gypsy. Each owl is the same size and 2 are cut on news print, 2 dark blue, 2 medium blue (one with white shadow, one with light blue shadow on each).

All of the cards have a stamp from My Pink Stamper's Tweetie Hoo Puns. And most have pop dots under the owls.

The blues and whites are all from a bag that I got at Bath and Body Works (except the card bases), and the print is from a news paper.

This card has blue bakers twine, one has blue irock gems.

This one has some pink bakers twine hearts.

(made by putting a layer of ATG tape one card stock and then lining it with the twine and cutting out the hearts by hand)

This card has some light blue ribbon/fibers on the bottom.

This one has blue bakers twine.

This one has blue glimmer mist.

I made this set to be kind of a mix and match set.. I plan to give it as a gift to someone.. I'm thinking my MIL.

I am entering this set into the following challenges:
