ColourQ #333

When you see the item in the ColourQ inspiration photo, you may know exactly why I played along this week:

Could it be this gorgeous LINEN dress?  YES!
 
I have only one of these colors in ink form ... but all of the papers.  Die cuts to the rescue!  I used a little die set that was a gift from my sweet friend, Lisa - thank you again, and again, girlfriend.  I've used this little SU die many times, but not for a challenge - it was a perfect choice:
 
Winnie & Walter Kisses cutaway just 'dots the i' me thinks!
 
These special little flutter-bys are my tribute to a very, very special cousin that I lost this week... 
Jeanne Claire Cotey Poirier - 99 years young - be seeing you, darling Jeanne... we'll be celebrating you big time on your 100th birthday, too!

I too love your card and the colors of green. I have the inks, but not all the papers! Thinking of you...Oh, and didn't your cousin have a great name during her long life. Can you tell us how she pronounced her name? I've never been sure on mine.
