Pretty in Pink

Who could resist pulling over and taking pictures of these flowers? I've not often seen a pink trillium along the edge of a road,  however on a recent sunny afternoon found this one, and a blossoming crab apple tree,  all in the same place.

The pictures needed to be together, just as I'd found them on the road, so this sketch from Scrapmuch? was perfect.

I chose a butterfly embellishment for the top of the page. I wanted the butterfly to be interpreted as just leaving the trillium.

The other embellishment was made by attaching a necklace drop to each of black, grey and white paper flower petals. The green leaf pin completed the floral look. I experimented with a 'triple zig zag' I found on my Pfaff and love how it came out. Even though it was sewn with pale pink thread, being triple stitched the pink showed up nicely on both the green and the paler pieces of background.
