not terrible... just with room for improvement. nothing is ever so terrible that it can't be improved.

first your edges are really rough and you have a few stray peices floating around. What I suggest is remove the shadow and add a thickish red stroke to it. that will highlight any of your stray peices and even the most small rough parts. erase your stray bits and then use the eraser to go around and smooth out your edges. It could also use just a touch of brightening.
with your shadow I would have it less visible. decrease the opacity and bring it in closer to the bow. also use the gaussian blur on it. if you created it at 300 dpi I would set the blur at 10-15. If at 72 I would try between 2-5. Now did you create the shadow yourself or add drop shadow? if you used drop shadow I would try the soft shadow setting. if you created it yourself, move your shadow layer almoset completely under the bow and then warp it so that just bits of the shadow come out more so that it has a more realistic pop to it.

hope that helps!
