This image conjures an asian influence to me.  I have picked up most of the colours from the images, with a focus on the Yellow, Lemon, Gold, and Lemon/Green,  with a touch Pink, Mauve.  I chose Yellow as the focus for its warmth and cheerful, qualities, that signifies hope and happiness teamed with pink / mauve to provide a playfullness to the piece.

The stitches I have employed are fly stitch, french knot, running stitch, buttonhole lace, ribbon french knot flower and ribbon loop stitch.
