Beaded wreath

Hi crafters. The challenge at Simon says Stamp Monday challenge is Stitch it. I have used some threads but not traditional stitching. I started with the Alexandra Renke dragonfly wreath and cut it from 2 greens. I then cut lots of leaves with Tim Holtz Funky florals 2 from scraps. I wove these into the wreaths. I then wrapped red acrylic yarn around the wreath. Next I decided the order of the star beads and then threaded them onto metallic crotchet thread. I was originally going to sew this thread through the card base but I changed my mind and just wrapped it around. I put dots of glue behind the beads to stop them moving. The card base was spattered with gold acrylic paint. The centre sentiment is from Tim Holtz simple sayings. It is embossed in red with gold pigment ink rubbed over it and then vintage photo distress ink around the edges. The lower sentiment is from Neat and Tangled Winter wishes.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:

Simon says Stamp Monday challenge: Stitch it I hope the use of threads and attaching the beads with thread is acceptable.
