Beads, beads, and more beads!

After trying a satin stitch twice for the flower stem, I decided to bead it.  I love how it turned out.  And I was initially going to just stitch my background stitch over the edges of the leaves, as I tried two different stitches and did not care for them.  But after beading the stem I thought, hey, why not bead the edges of the leaves as well!  Beads, beads, more beads!!!  But I love the look.  And I have become quite the whiz at beading, thanks to my EZ Beader.  LOVE that thing!
