Open a new 600 x 600 image in your psp.
From the kit, open the lace frame - Resize by 65%
Copy and paste as new layer. Using your magic wand,
click inside the frame - Selections - Modify - Expand
by 4. Choose a paper from the kit, Resize 65% - Copy
and paste as new layer. Selections - Invert - Delete.
KEEP SELECTED!! Move the paper layer below the frame layer.

Now we're going to add our tube. If using the tube that I've
used, resize her by 85%. Copy and paste as new layer.
Arrange to your liking - Delete. Select none. Now make the lace
frame active and RE-Paste your tube. Line the two tube layers
up together, and using your eraser.... erase her shoulders, some
of her braids, a little of her neck. This gives the effect that
she's coming out of the frame. When you're satisfied, add a
drop shadow of 2, -2, 60, 8 - Black to the bottom tube layer.
Also to the frame layer. X out the bottom and merge the paper,
frame, and tube layers, visible.

Now for the fun part of adding all the elements!!
I'm going to list the elements I used, and how I resized them.
You can choose to make your tag the same way, or different...
either's entirely up to you!!

leaves2 - Resized 50% -- Duplicate - Mirror
flower - Resized 25%
daisy - Resized 25%
grass - Resized 30% - Duplicate and Rotate (copy) left 90 degrees.
bow- Resized 50%

I added the same drop shadow used before to each of the element layers.

Once satisfied with all your elements and their placement.... X
out your bottom layer (Unless you still have it X'd out)
Merge visible. Resize just the image layer to 500 x 500 pixels.
Now let's make that bottom layer active (un X it)
Select all - Choose a paper from the kit - Copy and Past INTO selection.
Select none.

Layers - New Mask Layer - From Image.
Scroll until you see WSL_Mask328. Apply and merge group.
Duplicate the mask layer - Merge down and resize 105%
Effects - Plugins - DSB Flux - Bright Noise.
With the settings below:

Now you can choose my wordart or your own.... If using mine,
resize the wordart by 60% - Copy and paste as new layer.
Apply a drop shadow of 2, -2, 50, 3 - Black.

That's it!!
Resize your image again to your liking, crop any opaque parts.
Add your name and copyright info. Save as .png for a transparent
background or .jpg for a white background.

Hope you enjoyed this tut!!
