I like the first one alot, but here's somethings you could of fixed.
1.) You could made a better border.
2.) Darken a little.
3.) Recolor to a bright blue.
4.) Sharpen it a little.
Kinda like this one.
I hope you don't mind me editing it. ^^
EDIT: I didn't see the texted one for the first one, but here's the what you should fixed on the font. Don't add emboss to the font, and change the color of the glow to white. Set it to overlay and play with the opacity.
