Always remember to duplicate your tube and close the original
C/P means copy and paste as a new layer Unless otherwise stated
D/s means Drop Shadow
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 duplicate close original, delete credits and both heart layers,add a new layer send to the bottom floodfill with white, then resize width to 600, height will adjust itself make sure all layers are checked, then image canvas size 675x625, we can resize later but i like enough room to work.

Frame 1 : Add noise Uniform/75/Monochrome Checked add d/s.
Dotted circle : Select all/float/defloat new layer, Open your color swatch that comes with the kit and with your eyedropper tool make your foreground the last color on the swatch floodfill the dotted circle deselect and delete template layer.
