Default CC75: lovin violet

Since there was a thread last week about vintage violet: love it/hate it......well, I just had to use it for CC75. So I tried to find a good color combo that was not the norm. I hope I succeeded here! Can't wait to see what y'all think and what you make with it!

CC75:
sage shadow
vintage violet
creamy caramel

Please put CC75 in your keywords section (and if you have more than one challenge use a comma to separate them) so we can find your card! If you need help uploading click here!

As always, I am open to suggestions for future color challenges! Please pm me if you have one. Including a sample is always appreciated! I will probably not respond, as I get several, but I save them for future reference!

Okay here is mine. This is the first time I have used this set (had to mount it to use it) and I think it turned out okay. I hope MeMaw really likes as it will be her birthday card at the end of the month!

Oh, goody! I'm one of those that love it! VIntage Violet and Marigold Morning are my top two of the in color family. The only problem is that I don't really have any. I think I can substitute, though...I'll post one tomorow if I come up with something--this is the most difficult challenge for me as my supplies are very limited, but I just love to see what everyone does!

Violet I love, Sage is just a so so color for me, and Caramel, just for aging, right?! Anyway, I haven't stamped in ages so this CC was a motivator for me.
Here's my card:

Lovin Violet

Yeah! Thanks for posting early Emily! It's been a long time since I've been able to do a color challenge before I leave for work. And this was actually what I started last week with the creamy caramel and never finished, so it was easy to finish it today with Vintage Violet instead of Always Artichoke!

Vintage Thank You

I'd say that Perfect Plum looks the most similar to violet, IMO. That is what I will use since I don't have violet, either.

Such a pretty color combo! I haven't been able to participate in the challenges lately, but I'd like to try this one. However, I don't have vintage violet. Can we use a substitute color?
