Though I have used a few colours of thread to embroider the pattern, mirrors were the main highlight. The space around the placement of mirrors were embroidered with colours chosen from the printed fabric.
The next colour was peach, for this I chose silk thread instead of cotton skeins. satin stitch, back stitch and stem stitch were worked with this thread.

After peach silk thread, parrot green colour was used to stitch herringbone filling on the pattern.

Golden yellow colour cotton skein was used to work, back stitch and chain stitch on the pattern. And  I started the outlines with cream colour cotton skein.
