Birthday Butterfly Card and Notebook

My friend's daughter had a birthday and my niece, Alana, was invited.  She wanted to make her a card and she wanted me to make a card and a gift as well.  She wanted to pick out the papers for it.  We started with the notebook - which is a simple composition book.
 Alana insisted on picking out the paper.  We scrolled through her stash of scrapbook paper that I had given her.  She ended up picking the one above.  I apologize but I do not know what brand name the paper.
 I covered the notebook and then we tried to figure out how we were going to decorated the front.  We decided on that fancy "L" you see on the front that I cut with my Silhouette.
 We added some flowers and a butterfly made from Modge Podge Melts.  I hand-stitched the bookmark from some ribbon, a PTI button, and a small rubber band.
Next is the card:
This is Flutter Anya from The Greeting Farm.  She is stamped onto watercolor paper and colored with Twinkling H2Os.  
 Other card details:
Card Base:  SU Elegant Eggplant
DP: I cannot remember the company.  I believe it might be My Mind's Eye.
Jewels: Queen & Co.
Ribbon:  I bought that awesome ribbon at a yard sale.  It's a super huge roll!
Birthday Wishes stamp: Studio G.
 You can't really tell from the pics but I added Stickles to the wings.
