Welcome Baby cards, using Stampin Up's Moon Baby

I'm slipping back into crafting, easing in with two very similar cards to welcome babies. I used Stampin' Up's Moon Baby stamp set and also a sheet of designer paper from their Falling in Love pack.

I chose Copic colors for this first one based on the design paper that I later opted not to use. Adding a layer of that between the blue sheet and the colored image didn't show enough of the DSP to make sense.  The coloring here is all Copic with a little enhancement from Prismacolor pencils and a white gel pen on the sheep, adding curly swirls to the fleece.

I think this is okay, but not quite what I had in mind. I left the garland of stuffed toys off of the next card, cut the cardstock narrower and used the DPS this time to create this one which used all Prismacolor pencils on the stamped image.

Both moons have a coat of clear Wink of Stella. The second card has silver Wink of Stella on the dangling star with a coat of Glossy Accents on top of that.

The inside of both cards is the same.

Both are cute cards but I prefer the composition of the card on the left and the Copic colors used on the card on the right.
