Scandinavian Christmas Embroidery Project - Part Two

I have finished the Scandinavian Christmas embroidery project.  You can see part one of this project in this blog post. 

This motif is from the Scandinavian Christmas embroidery set:

For the snowflake I used Lazy Daisy stitches in the blue floss and Straight Stitches in the silver floss.  The blue lines under the sequins are also Straight Stitch.  The sequins are held in place with French Knots:

I used rows of Back Stitch for all the text and for the circular frame I used the Double Knot Stitch.

I used perle cotton floss and metallic floss on this project.  The color palette is limited, only three different colors! 

Here are the floss color numbers:
