PaperTrey Paint By Number Sketch Challenge

What a cool challenge.  Here are Nicole's instructions:
To make things fun and interesting, we are assigning color palettes based on the first letter of your online username.  The colors in your palette do not have to be used with any particular letter on the sketch, you can mix them up however you like, but you HAVE to use ALL of the colors in your assigned palette!
So here is the sketch:
And here is my color assignment:
And here is my card:
I found these colors to be very challenging.  I love this sketch and will use it again!
