One Card - three color schemes!

All papers, stamps and border punch from Stampin' Up.
I thought it would be fun to make some cards with the cute hostess set I got from Stampin' Up a couple of months ago.  I haven't had a chance to use it yet.  I couldn't decide which colors to use so I used three different combos!  The cute pearls and rhinestones (from A Muse Studios) add the perfect
touch to the center of each little flower.
Very Vanilla, Ruby Red, Cameo Coral, River Rock
I thought I would like the coral card the best until I made the blue one.  It was so soft and sweet it reminded me of old china and I knew my Aunt would like these colors together.
Very Vanilla, Bordering Blue, Not Quite Navy, River Rock
But then I made the cocoa card and it had such a pretty vintage feel and the brown pearl gave it a warm glow.  My great aunts loved earth tones and I know Ellie would have approved of this card for sure.  Sometimes neutral colors are good for general cards and they have a homey feel and coziness about them.  What do you think?  Which one is your favorite?
Very Vanilla, Creamy Caramel, Close to Cocoa, River Rock
