*Let's Get Started*
Open template duplicate and close original, delete credits and both lines layers,Image canvas Size650x650 floodfill your background with white we can resize later i just like enough room to work.
Rectangle : Select all/float/defloat open paper 7 c/p resize by 80% invert/delete/invert again then add new layer open paper 1 c/p into selection change the blend mode to Overlay and deselect and delete template layer, Now merge down both rectangle layers select again open Print c/p resize by 75% arrange above the rectangle invert/delete/deselect now duplicate/flip.

Frame : Select all/float/defloat new layer open paper 3 c/p into selection deselect and add noise Uniform/50/Monochrome checked, delete template layer.

I Used The Following
Ribbon 4 : 60% free rotate left/90/all layers unchecked, arrange duplicate/mirror
Prong : arrange on the frame.
Moon : 80% move behind the oval layer.
Flower 1 : 45% duplicate
Flower 2 : 40%
Envelope : 40% with your pick tool rotate slightly and move behind the oval layer.
Blood 2 : 40% and move above the envelope,arrange 
Add anymore elements you wish and a dropshadow to each
When your happy with your tag close off your white background layer and merge visable resize to a width of 625
Open paper 4 c/p apply big mask 1/merge group resize by 95% then open paper 7 c/p apply Big Mask 17 merge group.
