Remember to sharpen after resizing
Resizing is always smartsize
Elements are added with a D/S unless otherwise stated 
And see my finished tag for placement

*Let's Get Started*
Open template Shift+D close original, delete Preview,TOU and both wordarts. Resize by 575x575 and make sure all layers is checked, then canvas size 600/600, we can resize later but i like to have enough room to work.

Background Circle : Select all/float/defloat new layer floodfill with color #477090 and add noise Uniform/40/Monochrome Checked/deselect and delte template layer.

Circle : Select all/float/defloat new layer open paper 5 c/p into selection/deselect and delete template layer.

Square Frame : Select all/float/defloat new layer and floodfill with the same color you used earlier and apply the same noise, deselect and delete template layer.

Rectangle Background : Repeat the same steps as you did for the square background except mirror your tube.

I Used  the following
Element 11 : 15% arrange and erase sny that hangs over the circle.
Element 12 : 8% duplicate arrange then c/p again and resize by 6% arrange.
Element 18 : 25% arrange behind your flowers dulicate so you have 3 you may to erase bits and peices that hang over, when your happy merge all 3 layers together and resize by 95%
