Sweet shakers with Arcade Friends stamp set

Hi friends! I finally got to play with Close to My Heart's shaker card metal dies. This set makes shaker cards a breeze! I thought the shaker card idea paired nicely with some candy-themed cards. I used the retired Arcade Friends stamp set from Kindred Stamps to make a spunky little girl and a wrecking guy. I used also used Kindred Stamp's sprinkle stencil and a variety of distress inks to make colorful backgrounds for my shaker cards. I colored the characters and the "You're My Hero" cookie with copic sketch alcohol markers. The colors I used for these characters are listed below. For the cardstock, I just used scrap pieces that were lying around the craft room.
I also created a pop-up feature on the inside of the card for the wrecking guy. Now he stands up, looking tall and mighty, when the card is opened.
I made two versions of the card, the alternate card front is shown below. I used a different color scheme with the distress inks and I also included a sentiment from the Arcade Friends stamp set.
Which version of the card front is your favorite?
*Note: Kindred Stamps kindly asks its customers and designers to refer to their stamp sets by their listed name. Please don't use actual character names within your comments.
