Rockwell's Pantone Color Challenge: Linen

I have missed a couple of colors in Jackie Rockwell's Pantone Color Challenge.  I'm definitely going to go back and pick them up - all of them stay open until September 22!  But this week's linen color really caught my eye.  It's not easy to do an entire card in linen but I thought it would work for a classic sympathy card.

This is such a subtle and calm BEAUTY Kim! You really captured the serene quality of the Linen color.

Don't forget to link it up, so everyone else can admire your card. :)

Simple and stylish.
Love the impression die you used and the white outlining of the butterfly.
The sequins are perfect and gorgeous.
Unfortunately we also need these cards to send.
Your card has a 'tranquil' feel. ( I'm not sure if this is the right discription but I hope you get my point. :-))
