Always remember to duplicate your tube and close 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 wordart layers 5 & 6, Canvas Size 750x750, and floodfill background layer with white, We can resize later I just like having enough room to work with.
Raster 1 :
Select all/float/defloat open paper 8 c/p resize by 85% arrange invert/delete/deselect and delete template layer.
Raster 2 :
Repeat same steps that you did for Raster 1.
Raster 3 :
Select all/float/defloat new layer open paper 9 c/p into selection open tube make sure it is the very top layer resize arrange invert and erase just the bottom deselect and delete template layer, now duplicate tube Guassian blur 3.00 and change the blend mode to Screen or whatever works best with your chosen tube add d/s to original tube layer.

Element 12 - 25%
Element 37 - 20% flip
Element 64 - 55% mirror/flip and move under the rose
Element 36 - 15% rotate with pick tool/sharpen then duplicate/mirror and resize again by 80& sharpen
