The verse, name and year is over one thread. Satin stitch and cross stitch are used for the flower to the left of the word Extract. A mirroring flower to the right was never stitched and so a blank space remains. One can choose to not stitch the large flower to keep it balanced.The yellow bow and ribbon at the top is done in satin stitch and outlined in straight stitch.
