Which border?

I got the center done for these Christmas Louisiana Star swap blocks that have been sitting in a pile for over a year, yay! I used a blue border to tie in the block in the center that has blue in the fabric, and I quite like the contrast with the reds and greens. The swap hostess goofed, though, and I got two of my own blocks back – see them? 😀 There is also a pinwheel going the wrong direction, but oh well. I’ll keep this quilt as a backup throw or something for the couch at the holidays.

I also want to put a border on this, and use fabrics from my stash. Which of these do you like best? Each color coordinates (even if the lighting in my sewing room doesn’t show that), but each color gives a different feel to the quilt. The cream one says “joy” all over it and has some holly leaves, the green is straight up holly, and the blue is shimmery and glittery snowflakes.
