*Let's Get Started*
Open template Shift+D close original, delete credits and the following layers, Words and Stars 1&2 and thin rectangle.

Glitter rectangle : select all/float/defloat new layer , now find a gradient that matches your kit or you can make one, floodfill with your gradient then add noise Random/100/Monochrome Checked, deselect and delete template layer.

Large rectangle : Select all/float/defloat apply Penta Dot & Cross default settings, deselect.

Left Circle 1 : Select all/float/defloat add new layer and floodfill with the same gradient you used before add the same noise just change the amount to 70, deselect and delete template layer.

Left Circle 2 : select all/float/defloat add new layer open paper 10 c/p into selection Apply Tramages Pool Shadow default setting deselect and delete template layer.

Right Circle 1 : repeat same steps as you did for the previous circle.

Open main tube c/p resize by 80% arrange duplicate gussian blur 4.00 change the blend mode to Screen or whatever works best for your tube add a d/s to oroginal tube layer.

Sphere : do not resize
Flower 2 : 35% duplicate
Flower 4 : 35% duplicate
Wings 2 : 65% and move behind your main tube.

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 resize if needed.
Select all new layer Open paper 2 c/p into selection deselect, apply Taramages Pool Shadow default settings twice then apply mask/merge group then apply Xenofex - Constellation i used Small Stars setting but play around with it to find what looks best to you.
