An autumn coloured wreath

Some perfect autumn colours over at CAS colours and sketches
Here is my card

 A while ago I made this card and said at the time that I had made three to the same sketch. Here is the second of them.
I added the gems to hide some dirty smudges.
The thread was all the ends of skeins that were of similar tones, I just chose the darkest colour and stitched until it was finished and then moved down the colour spectrum slowly getting lighter and this is the end result. Lots of fun.
Card stock: 160gsm in white
Paper: Scrap booking paper in green
Liquid pearls in gold
Flat backed gems in champagne
