Janlynn color conversion

Some years ago, I bought a Janlynn cross stitch pattern titled "Mother's Love" (A mother's love is like a rose. Each passing day it grows and grows.). Can anyone help me convert the colors? The Janlynn website does not list these particular colors in its conversion chart.
The colors are
Light pink
Medium pink
Dark pink
Light green (might be DMC 3347)
Dark green (might be DMC 3051)

    I hate following directions.Is there a reason why you want to do this in the exact same colors? There is no law that says you have to use the "suggested" floss. I would just pick three pinks out of my stash. Or, I might choose bright colors. Is your fabric white or cream. I might stitch on blue or light green.

    The important thing is to have fun stitching and enjoy the final result. Go to top
