Color Challenge (+Freebie Friday!)

Good morning!  It's Day 7 (and the final day) of Catch the Bug's Christmas in July celebration!  Today we have a color challenge for you; I don't know about you, but a color challenge really is a challenge for me!  Here's the color palette:

Thankfully the colors are really pretty!  The presents in today's Freebie Friday image made it pretty simple to implement the colors...whew!  Rudolph is colored with pencils and I turned the image panel into a tag.  (Yes, that is an eyelet on the tag!  When is the last time you used an eyelet?  It has been so many years for me that I had to search for my tools!  I do have a great assortment of eyelets though...this one is Doodlebug.)  I used a fun die with Santa's reindeer names and added ribbon and buttons for embellishing.  (Just in case you noticed....  The green ribbon really does coordinate with the paper...and Rudolph's green shirt and the button!  It is frustrating when the camera doesn't capture the true color; why does it look grayish?  If anyone know how to remedy this, I would love to hear your tips!)  Here's a close-up:
