Just remember that my choices of papers and elements is just a suggestion, change it up and make it yours! You don't have to follow mine exactly.
Let's get started!
Open a new 700x700 canvas with a white background. You can crop it at the end, resize and get rid of the white if you want. This just gives us lots of room to work.
Open WP_AA_Frame, copy and paste as a new layer, resize by 75%. Click inside it with your magic wand, hold down your shift key and get the areas inside the frames that are rotated. Selections>modify>expand by 5.
Open paper 5, copy and paste as a new layer, resize by 75%, selections>invert, click delete on your keyboard. Leave selected.
Open your tube, copy and paste as a new layer, arrange it how you want inside your frame, then take your eraser tool and erase whatever parts you don't want showing over the frame. Deselect and add a drop shadow to your tube and frame.
Open the scalloped frame, copy and paste as a new layer. Drag it down so it is just above your white background layer. Add your drop shadow.
Open the rainbow element, copy and paste as a new layer. Drag it down below the green frame, and above the background paper. Arrange it how you like it. I just pretty much left mine where it pasted because you can see it just behind her.
Open the pansy element, copy and paste as a new layer, resize by 55%, mirror, rotate to the right by 10, add a drop shadow.
Open HRHeartscatter, copy and paste as a new layer, drag this layer so that it is just above the white background layer. Resize by 85%.
Open the harp element, copy and paste as a new layer, resize by 25%, rotate to the left by 15. Add your drop shadow and arrange it on the left side of your tag.
Add any text to it you'd like and your name, copyright info and credits as needed. Crop, resize and save.
