Add a drop shadow of your choosing to tubes & elements throughout. I usually use 1, 1, 50, 5 unless otherwise noted.
Let's get started!
Open a new canvas 950 x 950 pixels with a white background
Open frame 5 copy and paste as a new layer, resize 85%
Take your magic wand with the tolerance set at 3, feather at 0
click on the lighter colored part of the frame, selections, modify, expand 1
selections, invert, copy and paste paper 4 as a new layer, click delete on your keyboard
deselect and merge the two layers together
click inside the frame with your magic wand, selections, modify, expand 2, selections, invert
open paper 2 copy and paste as a new layer
click delete on your keyboard, leave selected
Copy and paste your close up tube as a new layer, resize by 90%
arrange in your frame
erase the bits that hang out of your frame where you don't want them
Now you can add your elements:
element 9 resize 50% duplicate twice,arrange one on the bottom left, mirror one, arrange it on the bottom right, rotate the 3rd left 45, arrange it below the other two layers in the center
resize the two on the outside corners 90%
element 8 resize 70% arrange below the flowers in the center
element 39 resize 75% arrange below the flowers on the left, duplicate & mirror, erase
what shows in the bottom center
element 40 rotate left 90 arrange on the right side, duplicate & mirror, arrange between the frame and the tube layers
element 47 resize 75% arrange below the two outside flower clusters, but above the middle one
on the left side, duplicate and mirror
element 37 resize 45% arrange below the flower cluster layer on the bottom right corner
element 38 resize 55% arrange on the bottom left corner under the flower cluster layer
word art resize 85% make sure to add your drop shadow or it does show well, arrange across the tube and just above the flowers in the center area
add paper 4 above the white background, resize 115% so it fits the canvas better,
apply your mask, merge group
duplicate about 5 times and merge together so it's darker
crop and resize
