Of course, you can make that cross, Patricia.  I read somewhere that the chances of getting identical flowers from a single cross was a few billion to one, about like the chance of getting identical people.  
I just posted my favorite to Iris-photos.  E-mail me off list, and I'll give you the whole story.

  Congratulations, Francelle!!

  How exciting to breed lovely seedlings such as you describe!  Can you 
  get digital pics to post on iris-photos?

  And may I duplicate your cross at some point?  I have Pink Lenox, and 
  have ordered Celebration Song for this summer's planting.  I would 
  share photos (hardcopy in my case) with you.  Fun to see all the 
  variations, yes?

  Whidbey Island, WA, zone 8? where after only three precious days of 
  sun, the weather has returned to rain, highs in the 50s, lows in the 
  40s.  I put clear plastic bags on my few tall blooms this morning, so 
  I can rescue any pollen possible for future crossing.
