The idea is good just a couple of things to think about when undertaking this type of image. Use a tripod whenever possible. A small apeture about f 11, f16, or even f22 you must work out what is best for the lens that you are using. because you will be close to the subject the deapth of field will be shallow. Fill the frame as much as possible. With the background really blured out it adds very little to the image. I have put up a mod to help show what I mean. I have cropprd and sharpend as much as possible but sharpening will not cure shallow death of field or lack of focus.
I hope this helps rather than put you off.

Yes, you need more depth of field , a much smaller aperture. I assume you are using a Canon DSLR with 'C' sensor - in which case the 35mm focal length is about 168mm. The depth of field at f3.2 will thus be minimal.
