ASeriously very pretty. I especially like the roses on top.

From this angle, it looks very smooth. A side view would be easier to see any imperfections.

It's hard to tell from this angel, but the border may be a tad large. It may just be the angel.

AAwesome smooth!

For my personal taste, the border is a tad large. It's such a beautiful, delicate design so I would have gone a bit smaller.

Serious reasons to be proud!

AThat is great work, hard to believe that was your first attempt! Mine was lumpy and wrinkly and just horrible. You are GOOD!

I would have done a simple bead border to match the sweet tri-dots you used for decoration http://www.verydeliciousdesserts.com/#!Mulit-loop-bow/zoom/c1w0q/image6s5  or http://www.verydeliciousdesserts.com/#!Yellow-Black/zoom/c1ff7/image1kqm

 

If I was going to do a shell border, I would have made it just a little smaller like http://www.verydeliciousdesserts.com/#!His-Favorite/zoom/c11wr/image64e .
