Bugaboo Christmas in July 2018-Day 6 Colour Challenge

Today is Day 6 of the 2018 Christmas in July Bugaboo Challenge. The theme for Day 6 is  a Color Challenge.  See here for all the details.

 I choose Bugaboo's Winter - Birds Snowman for my image  and coloured it  with Prismacolor Markers.  There are five colours to the challenge and I tried to match the  colours I had to the ones on display at the Catch the Bug site. They  might not match what you see on your screen, but they look like what my monitor showed. It is an old computer so who knows.

 I followed a  Sweet Sketch Wednesday Challenge for my layout. The two diagonal  corner decorations are from Spellbinders  'Ironwork Accents' die cut set. The large snowflake die was a gift and I  do not know the brand. The sentiment is from a Gina K Design stamp kit titled 'blessed is the season' The embossing folder for the white background layer is  Stampin' Up's 'Decorative Dots'.
