You now have a brand new theme! Some things to be aware of are that widgets that dont match from your last theme wont be included on the new one. For example if you have all your widgets set on the left side bar, but the new theme doesnt have one but instead has one on the right you may need to spend some time moving your widgets over to suit the new theme.
