Actually it´s not just a star, it´s a cluster in Sagitarius...

 

Can you see any "rose"?

Do you see a rose in Caroline's Rose (NGC 7789)?

Do you see a fuzzy butterfly in the Fuzzy Butterfly Cluster (NGC 654)?

Sorry EPinEC. Answering your question, I did't see any of the objects you mentioned in your pictures...

No worries!  I was really just joking.  I always find the names of these objects amusing.  Sometimes they do make sense (like the "37 Cluster"), sometimes they are charming (like Caroline's Rose), and sometimes they are just absurd.  The human imagination can be quite whimsical.

I think that when you back out the perspective a bit, the similarity is a bit more apparent:
