I just did some cards with IFB and I used Mellow Moss and Almost Amethyst. Oh, wow, did they turn out soooo purty!!!!

I always love the Perfect Plum and Mellow Moss combo too. Just tried something different when I used the Amethyst instead.

I personallly think that Perfect Plum and Pale Plum go the best with Mellow Moss. I will tell you that Pale Plum is very light when stamped. I usually use both plums when I use two step stamps.
Here is a sample of the mellow moss with the two plums.
It scanned darker than it really is.

I know it's not a soft subtle, but I LOVE Mellow Moss with Orchid Opulence. The brightness of the OO works beautifully with the muted green. Just another option for you!!

I also love Purple Plum, Pale Plum and Mellow Moss together. I attended a workshop where we did a card with these three colors and I bought the card stock and stamp pads of those three that night!

I have to agree that Perfect Plum is the PERFECT companion to Mellow Moss. I just go ga ga over that combo. Also Mellow Moss and either Rose Red or Rose Romance....GORGEOUS!

Good luck with your project! Make sure to post it when you are done!

I think that Lavender Lace goes very well. I just did some baby shower invites with LL and MM and they were perfect!!!

I vote for Perfect Plum--I made my sister's wedding invites with these colors, and it's a nice combo. I also like Old Olive and Eggplant Envy together, for a bolder green/purple combo.

They all look nice, but I prefer lavender lace with mellow moss. The mm & plums combination is used a lot and to my eyes doesn't look fresh and interesting anymore.
