I like your colors. Two things tho - you need ot fix your thumbnail (detail) image - it's not displaying on the screen. And, without a larger image to see, I'm going to take a guess that you have gradients making up that glow and the moon. Woot's rejectionator will get you for that. Check the submission guidelines. You'll need to convert them to halftones.

Thanks for the advice.
I'm still new to this and pretty confused about the halftones. I tried to get around it by using the Illustrator gradient, but goofed up someplace. I switch back some with PhotoShop, where I'm more comfortable.

doing halftones is pretty easy. Just google search a tutorial (or a couple). It is just another filter.

When they say that illustrator uses can use gradients in the guidelines they mean someone who does there entire submission in a vector program (i.e. illustrator). You can't switch back and forth and still get the gradients rule waived.

as for the design itself. Try integrating the shirt itself more, square designs never really do well or look good. Have some transparencies that use the shirt color to your advantage.
