Woven cross stitch on my garden sampler

TAST stitch 77 is woven cross stitch. Sharon wrote that this stitch looks fantastic with a bead in the middle, so that’s what I planned. But after stitching the woven cross stitches with Stef Francis perle 5 I couldn’t find matching beads. I didn’t want to add French knots, because I’m trying to use as many different stitches on my garden sampler as possible. I threaded my needle with yellow perle 8 and stitched drizzle stitches. Then I added berry stitch leaves with perle 12.
Take a closer look at the woven cross stitches on my garden sampler here.
