Copy & Paste the Frame (Element 38) I resized by 20%and moved it up slightly now with your magic wand click inside the frame and Selections – Select all add a new Raster layer and copy and paste Paper 01 into selection - Select none and drop the paper layer below the frame and drop shadow the frame.
Now click on and make active your background layer add a new raster layer and flood fill it with a colour from your tube then Layers – Load/Save Mask – Load Mask from Disk and locate WSL_Mask216 and okay make the group layer active in your layer palette and right click and merge group (stretch the mask as necessary using the Raster Deform tool so it shows on all sides below the frame) now copy and paste Element 08 (ribbon) and place it where you think it looks best I also duplicated it and mirrored and flipped it but do what you prefer move them around till you are happy with how it looks then make your paper in the frame the active layer copy and paste the a close up of your tube resizing it as necessary and place it to the left use your eraser tool to get rid of any of the tube showing below the frame now copy and paste whichever Elements you wish I used 12, 14, 31, 32, 33, 34 and 44 I used the Raster Deform tool to move them around and placed them to the right of the frame I also used Element 29 and used my Freehand Selection tool to select just the pink heart I used my eraser tool to erase some of the pink heart to make it look like the key is through the heart you will have to resize everything to your liking I then clicked on the Mask layer and copy and pasted Elements 43 and 21 resizing using the Raster Deform tool and I duplicated them and mirrored and flipped them move them around till you are happy with it or see mine for reference. Click on the top layer of the sparkles you know the ones just above the Mask and merge them all together Rename this layer Glitter
