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 a new image 750x650 and floodfill with white.
Open frame 1 c/p resize by 80% take your selection tool set on rectangle and draw over your window till you have a square add new layer open paper 1 c/p resize by 60% arrange move below your window invert/delete/invert again open tube c/p resize arrange invert/delete/deselect.
Now back to your tube, duplicate Guassian Blur 3.00 and change the blend mode to Overlay and add d/s to original tube layer and window.
Now time to add the elements
I used the following
Tree - 75% move above your white background layer arrange duplicate/mirror
Branch 1 - 40% arrange duplicate/mirror,  duplicate again and move then duplicate/mirror you want it to be full see my tag for reference, merge all branch layers together and resize again by 90%.
Flower 1 - 30% duplicate/mirror c/p again resize by 25% arrange duplicate/mirror.
Snow - 55% move behind the branch layer
Swirl 2 - 80% and move behind the flowers.
Cardinal 1 - 40% mirror and tuck behind the flower
Fence - Move above the tree's
Add anymore elements you wish and a dropshadow to each and to your template layers.
When your happy with your tag close off your white background layer and merge visable
Add new layer  select all open paper 3 c/p into selection apply mask/merge group duplicate change the blend mode to Multiply then merge down then add noise Guassian/30/Monochrome checked.
Add your copyright, I add mine after i have resized it it keeps it crisp and clear.
Add your name in font of choice.
