Have you tried simplifying to just two colors—a night sky and foreground. Not sure that's the answer, but a thought.

I think this is working! Or Those colors are fabulous and the type on the bottom is perfectly tracked (I might just nudge it down a tad to center). For the illustration I might try a few different things. First bring some more of that great texture over to the left side - there's a few larger flat spaces. I'd try making the dark blue a little taller so more of the roof is overlapping it more. Or maybe since everything is kind of flat try losing the perspective on the manger?

I LOVE this. What a great use of color. I like Dawn's suggestion of making the blue stripe a little larger. I would probably take that difference out of the orange. I think I like the perspective on the manger. I think it makes the illustration feel a little wider and that it covers more ground. Great work!

Oh this is different! What about removing either the green or orange stripe so it's not quite as busy? I also wonder if the star being moved to the left might help balance it a little. Could you maybe repeat one of the bright colors in the copy or behind the copy? Their heads also feel super close to the bottom stripe. Sorry for throwing so much out there, just some thoughts! I think it's really fresh!
