*NOTES*
Always remember to duplicate your tube and close the original
C/P means copy and paste as a new layer
D/s means Drop Shadow
Remember to sharpen after resizing
Resizing is always smartsize

*Let's Get Started*
We are working from the bottom up
Open Template Shift+D,close original,resize to 650x550 make sure all layers are checked, then canvas size 700x600, we can crop later i just like having enough room to work.

Hightlight raster 5 : select all/float/defloat new layer open paper 7 c/p into selection/deselect delete template layer, add a fat white gradient glow with a width of 3.00.

Highlight raster 4 : select all/float/defloat open paper 4 c/p resize by 80% invert/delete/deselect, add same gradient glow, delete template layer.

Highlight raster 3 : select all/float/deflaot new layer c/p 3 into selection/deselect add same gradient glow as you did before, delete template layer.

Highlight raster 2 : select all/float/defloat open paper 4 c/p resize by 80% invert/delete/deselect, add same gradient glow, delete template layer.

Highlight raster 1 : select all/float/defloat add new layer c/p paper 1 into selection/deselect, delete template layer, now on the layer we just made select all/float/defloat and expand by 6 new layer floodfill with white, now contract by 6 now tap delete and you have made a frame , deselect add noise Uniform/55/monochrome checked.

Open  tube c/p resize now hightlight your paper layer again select all/float/defloat arrange your tube make sure it is above the frame we just made, once you have your tube where you like invert and take your eraser tool and erase just the part of her dress and arm that are hanging over you might need to zoom in a few times to make sure you dont erase anything else, once your done deselect.
Now back to your tube duplicate guassian blur 2.00 and change the blend mode to soft light and add dropshadow to original tube layer.

Now Time To Add The Elements
I Used : 
Scatter 1 ; 45% mirror/duplicate/flip
Flower 4 : 30%
Flower 6 : 30% duplicate free rotate left 35
Brance 3 : 30%, tuck behind the cluster  we just made, duplicate/mirror
Flower 2 : 30% duplicate 2 times and arrange
Leaves 3 : 25% tuck behind the roses we just clustered free rotate 35 left, duplicate free rotate right 35,
Bird 1 : 55% 
Butterfly 1 : 45%
Add anymore elements you wish and add dropshadow of choice to all your elements and template layers.

When your happy with your tag close off your white background layer and merge visable and resize tag to width 650, height will adjust itself, make sure all layers us UNCHECKED.
add new layer, select all open paper 12 c/p into selection/deselect, apply mask/merge group reduce opacity to 35%
add new layer select all open paper 9 c/p into selection/deselect apply mask/merge group then apply Xenofex2 - Constellation, i used Small Stars Setting but play around and find what you like best.then merge visable.
Add your copyright, I add mine after i have resized it it keeps it crisp and clear.
Add your name  I used the same graident i used before and apply Tramages Pool Shadow default settings.add noise and gradient glow.
Save as a PNG and Your Done!
