Eurovision embroidery

I haven't had much time for sewing recently and I wanted a quick project just to get me doing something so I invented a mini challenge. My daughter came over to watch the Eurovision song contest with us and before it started I made her choose one piece of fabric, three types of beads and five strands of embroidery thread from my sewing room. I only gave her ten minutes to choose and she got a bit stressed but appeared on time clutching the goods. I added a second piece of material (the turquoise) and voila - an embroidery which I rather like using colours and combinations I would never have chosen but which worked well.

You  can see from the close up that it's Sharon Boggon inspired.

And I enjoyed Eurovision as well. I've just noticed that I forgot to remove the guide stitches from the embroidered circle! I'll snip them out later.
