Embroidered Holly Leaves

I have a new project finish to share - this holly leaves and berry motif from my Winter embroidery pattern.  

For the holly berries, I used two sizes of cup sequins.  The large sequin is a 12mm size and the smaller ones are 7mm.

The holly leaves are stitched with the Fishbone Stitch. The leaf center lines are Back Stitch.  I added accents to the leaves with Straight Stitches using Kreinik blending filament.
The swirly line is stitched with the Double Knot Stitch and then whipped with blending filament:

The sequins are attached with a 1.5mm glass seed bead stitched through the sequin center.

The floss is all perle cotton.  Here are the color numbers:
