Thanks so much for all the feedback!! It was a close one but I went with the majority on option B... I darkened the cream a bit so there wasn't so much contrast. Hopefully it still works... Will definitely add the mint as an alternate colorway, if it comes to it :)

Soooo pretty!!! I like them both, but prefer the contrast in B, so voted that way. Or maybe a lighter blue or mint color to up the contrast.

Alright - I keep looking at it, maybe the contrast is too much in B...I'm switching my vote to A...
