It's designed in shades of blue, gold, mauve, and green with metallic fiber accents. The directions include tips on changing the colorway should you desire to do so.

Comments by Teresa Wentzler:

Stitching Comments: This design is small, but is fairly challenging with lots of fractional stitches, and some lazy-daisy stitch motifs. There's also a bit of metallic braid for added interest. I finished the edges of the bookmark by doing a narrow hemstitch approximately 6 fabric threads away from the edges of the stitching, and trimming the fabric close to the hemstitching.
