And see my finished tag for placement

*Let's Get Started*
Open template duplicate close original delete credits and Star and Strip layers Image Canvas Size 650x650. we can resize later but I like enought room to work.
Rectangle 1 : Select all/float/defloat open paper 2 c/p invert/delete/deselect add inner bevel of choice and d/s and delete template layer.
Rectangle 1 + 2 Dotted Corner : Select all/flaot/defloat new layer and floodfill with white ad noise Uniform/50/Monochrome Checked deselect and delete template layer.
Rectangle 2 ; repeat the same steps as you did for rectangle 1 except use paper 6 and resize by 80% twice.
Glitter Oval : Add same noise you used for the Dotted Corners and add d/s.
Oval : Select all/float/defloat open paper 3 c/p resize by 80% then 90% arrange invert/delete invert again open Element 61 c/p arrange invert/delete/deselect and delete template layer.
Open tube c/p resize by 75% if your using the same tube duplicate guassian blur 3.00 and change the blend mode to soft light and add d/s to original tube layer.

Element 93 - 65%
Element 109 - 50%
Element 120 - 45% move behind your tube use your pick tool to make it look like he is peeking out behind her.
Element 125 - 45% then  70%  duplicate arrange.
Element 29 - 35%

Element 41 - move above stocking garland.
Add anymore elements you wish and a dropshadow to each.
