Various Japanese motifs create this veritable party in the garden. Monique wanted the birds to be dominant, using shades of pink and purple for the original coloring so that they would stand out from the background greens. The embroidery creates a startlingly different effect with shades of salmon and turquoise, with the dragonflies in soft cream receding into the background while still ensuring a beautifully textured finish.
