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 your template and change the canvas size to about 750 x 750 so you have some room to work.
Open paper 3, fill black circle and lower black circle by making the layer active (click on it in your layer palette) click inside the shape with your magic wand, selections, invert, copy and paste your paper as a new layer, click delete on your keyboard, deselect. Add a drop shadow then delete your original template layer.
Do the same for the 2rectangles layer using paper 9.
On the heart frame layer, do the same using paper 8. Add/remove noise using the following settings uniform, monochrome 100%.
Fill the heart layer with paper 4.
Make the mask layer active, selections, select all, float, defloat, invert. Copy and paste paper 4 as a new layer, click delete on your keyboard then deselect. Duplicate the pink mask layer and merge down. Delete the original mask layer.
Fill the wa layer the same way you filled the shapes layer using paper 4. Delete the original wa layer and merge down with wa bg. Add a drop shadow.
Make your heart layer active. Selections, select all, float, defloat, invert. Open your tube, copy and paste as a new layer, duplicate. Drag one layer below the heart frame and one above. Hide the top tube. Take your eraser tool and erase the bits of tube hanging over the frame. Deselect. Add a drop shadow to the tube.
Un-hide your top tube layer. Erase the bits hanging over the frame. You don't have to be super careful because you'll have the bottom tube showing.
