Child's Birthday Card Swap

I am participating in a card swap on Splitcoaststampers that's for Cute Children's Birthday Cards.  There's still plenty of time to join since the due date isn't until December 1st, 2010.  We're supposed to make 6 cards per spot and we'll get 5 back, the plus one is always for the hostess, but in this case the hostess will be donating all her cards to The Ronald McDonald House Southern Alberta Charity.  I think this is such a great and worthy cause, so much so that I joined up for 2 spots and am thinking of just making a bunch of cards so that she can send along with the ones she's donating.  Here are the cards that I've made for my two spots:

I used SU's Make a Monster set for this card and used my Copics to colour it in.  I'm trying to use up all my retired colours so the cardbase here is Ballet Blue, and the dsp is mounted on Apricot Appeal.  There's also a bit of Certainly Celery on the card, I know it's not retired but I just had to tie in the little green monster.

This one is a Cricut creation using the Disney cartridge.  I finished putting Mickey together but didn't really like all the white space so I decided to cut out a huge head in Real Red cs and I think it gives the card the finishing touch.

What do you think?

Thanks for looking!
