Yeah I dont like have you have to much behind the body, so it blends are the arm weird. The gradient is okay, and I like the little logo you made with her name. Border looks good, I never liked the shadow around it though, but overall the banner is pretty good.
This is the case for me where its good graphicly but I dont like it personally. The blending on the cut is very good. And I like the color you picked for it. I dont like the 'sign' the text is on, or the text for that matter. Overall, graphicly its good but just not my style. Good thing its for you not me then right?
