Try It Out Tuesday #12

This week's challenge was Gift Day! We were to create a card and two gifts with stamps and supplies from Susana's store.
Be sure to check out the store blog, Follow Your Heart, to see what the other talented design team members came up with!
I think I made this much harder than it needed to be. I thought and thought and agonized over this. Even told Susana and Suzanne I didn't think I'd participate this week but then I realized I was being silly and sat down and this is what I came up with.
On the card I cut out the teeny butterfly and popped it up on a little pop dot.
On the bookmark I used the Crinkled Chalk Technique.

For the card:
card size: 5 1/2 x 4 1/4
Cathrine with butterfly, Lockhart Itty Bitty Butterfly on inside,
paper: some from my scraps,
Memento Tuxedo Black,
others: copics (don't forget the awesome bundles that Susana carries
here), Bazzill Bitty Blossoms, granny smith bella baubles, stardust stickles (Susana also carries LOTS of wonderful stickles!! See them here)

For the bookmark:
bookmark size: 2 x 5 1/2
stamps: Butterflies from Things With Wings sheet,
paper: Georgia Pacific, some from my scraps
ink: VersaMagic Pink Petunia, VersaMagic Sea Breeze, VersaMagic Tea Leaves,
others: Martha Stewart punch, fiber,

For the coaster book:
coasters were given to me and they are 4x4 in size
stamps: Butterflies from Things With Wings sheet
paper: some from scraps
ink: VersaMagic Pink Petunia, VersaMagic Tea Leaves, Memento Tuxedo Black,
others: corner rounder, shaped eyelets, ribbon, copics, Pixie Dust Shimmerz,
