Well let me just whip out my WOTA color card here

I personally think Winter Night is the closest to Navy Blue. I think it depends on what your definition of Christmas Red is...If it's a brighter, truer red, I would just go with Red, but HollyBerry (a bit darker) and Cranberry (also darker, but lighter than HollyBerry) are both very pretty reds. Now, I don't have the best light in here, but I think the Daffodil is a bit more muted in real life, but it's still yellow. It's really the only yellow you have to work with if you want WOTA.

I dont think its mustardy...its a muted sunshine yellow. Here's a pic of the mega-booga I made for my sister with Daffodil, Cherry Blossom and Hyacinth...

Pre-felting (the color here is more accurate):
