Summer Breeze DYB RR: Jakkie's block finished

I love how soft and romantic this block is with a feminine feel.
I love how the yellow rose brings out the lavender color in the block.
The dangle is an earring part that I salvaged and thought it looked nice on the block. I made spiderweb roses in lavender and sweetheart roses in 7mm ivory and 4mm pink. The fern are made from the Caron Rachelette thread.
This seam is a single feather stitch with 3 ribbon stitches done with 2mm silk ribbon on each prong, then I added purple flower sequins to the seam. I also placed clear lavender glass flower bead to the fabric since I wanted to keep the soft watercolor feel of it.
