Windsong Jewels DYB RR: My work on Maire's Blocks

Here is the block I choose from Marie's blocks to embellish all finished!
I added a feather stitch seam treatment in light aqua blue using 1 strand floss and added clear size 15 seed beads. Then I added 2 lace butterflies with small Czech glass beads and fly stitch antennae with colonial knots at the tips.
In this bouquet I made sweetheart roses, colonial knot forget-me-nots, french knot flowers, and ribbon stitch leaves along with adding Czech glass beads. The butterfly was an earring I cut the post off of and stitched onto the block!
To the fan in the center I added a silk ribbon bow and a Czech glass heart bead. On the seam with the lace I added Czech glass flower beads and ribbon stitch leaves. I also added 2 gold butterfly beads to the lace.
The button/bead cluster I added assorted buttons, freshwater pearls, and Czech glass beads.
