Pink Block Still More Embellishment

I still have more embellishment to add to this block, but I wanted to share what I added yesterday. I added the frosted AB glass flowers on the top seam with 3 ribbon stitch leaves at the tops, also some pink glass pearls to the white silk ribbon braid. Then I put in a feather stitch in the lower right, and a rose leaflet and bud on the left.
Thought you all might like to see a close up of the fan. I felt the corner needed some green so I added a rose leaflet using lazy daisy leaves, and a stem stitch stem, then I added the rose bud using a one wrap bullion tipped lazy daisy and fly stitch with straight stitch stem.
Here is a close up of the butterfly I had made...it's SO cute! I will for sure make more of these in the future. And yes I added the feather stitch after the vines...LOL...it wasn't that bad to maneuver around the leaves though and the seam really needed something more.
