The loom beaded strip has a white field and a black border. There is a medium blue dentil line and a line of light blue beads around the edge. The repeating pattern is a yellow, light blue, then orange stepped diamond, outlined with black and a yellow butterfly-like design outlined in orange with a light blue body.
