For this tutorial you will need the following:

Paint Shop Pro, I am using PSP X, you should be able to use any version.

Tube of choice, I am using the artwork of Lilith Morana,which you need a license to use. You can get it at AIL, here.

Scrap kit of choice. I am using a PTU kit, Resolutions by Jen's Sweet Temptations, which you can find here.

Font of choice, I am using Zebra.

Plugins: Xero Fritillary

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 canvas 650 x 650 white background.

Open paper 9. Set your preset shape tool on elipse.

On your color palette, click on the colored box and go to patterns. Find the paper in the menu and click on it. Angle should be 0 and scale 100%. Set your foreground to white, line style solid, width 10. Now draw out a largish circle in the middle of your canvas.

Objects, align, center in canvas, Convert to raster layer. Take your magic wand and click in the white border. Ajust, add/remove noise, add noise monochrome and uniform checked 100%

Deselect, add a drop shadow. Duplicate.

Adjust blur, gaussian blur, 40. Apply Xero Fritillary, change the variation to 30. Resize by 110%

Open ribbon 2, copy and paste as a new layer, arrange near the bottom of the circle, add a drop shadow. If necessary, take the eraser and erase the bits hanging over the frame.

Open fireworks 1, copy and paste as a new layer, arrange near top left of the circle.

Open flower 3, copy and paste as a new layer, resize by 30%. Arrange on right, just above the ribbon. Duplicate, rotate to the left by 12, Drag the duplicate just above the original flower & drag that layer below the original flower layer. Do it again so you have a total of 3 flower layers. Merge all 3 flower layers together, duplicate and mirror.

Open your tube, copy and paste as a new layer, resize if necessary, add a drop shadow. 

Crop & resize.
