This is actually very nice for a first try.
I would suggest that you use .PNG pictures, or use the free select tool when it gives you straight lines to work with. If you don't there will be white stuff around the image. If you're using a .PNG picture, you should also have a CLEAR or transparent background so it's easier. You should also use different fonts, rather than the ones aleady installed on your computer. The border trick is a good thing to do, too.
