Feel free to use my tutorial as a guide and have fun giving it your own spin.

This tutorial assumes you have a working knowledge of PSP.
Needed Supplies & Filters :

Tube of Choice .. I am using the work of Lacy Clagg (www.lacyclagg.com) which you must have a license to use. Please do not use her work without purchasing through My Tag Art here.

Scrap Kit of Choice .. I have used a gorgeous PTU scrap kit by Puddicat called Taste the Rainbow which you can purchase here.

Mask of Choice .. I haved used WSL_Mask352 by weescotslass which can be downloaded here.

Word Art of Choice .. I have used Word art by Lori which can be downloaded here.

Font of Choice .. Pointed Brush

Let's get started

New image 600x600 and floodfill with white. New raster layer, select all, paste into selection Paper 12. Select none. New mask layer from image, WSL_Mask352, invert transparency unchecked, and merge group.

Copy and paste Frame 2 and resize 65%. Using your magic wand, select the center portion of your frame, selections modify/expand 3. Copy and paste Paper 2 below your frame layer, resize 65%, selections invert and hit delete. Select none.

Drop shadow your frame. I have used 2/2/40/4 throughout.

Copy and paste Leaves & flowers 2, resize 75% & drop shadow. Centre.

Copy and paste Leaves 2, resize 65%, rotate left 10 & drop shadow. Position on the left hand side. Layer duplicate & mirror.

Copy and paste Flowers 3, resize 65% twice & drop shadow. Position on the right hand side. Layer duplicate & mirror.

Copy and paste Butterfly 1, resize 40%, rotate left 10 & drop shadow. Position top left hand corner.

Copy and paste Ribbon 1, resize 75%, flip & drop shadow. Position bottom centre. Layer duplicate mirror. Trim the long ends of your ribbons if necessary once you position your tube.

Copy and paste your Tube. Resize if necessary & drop shadow. I positioned my tube a lil left of centre.

Copy and paste Tricycle, resize 50% & drop shadow. Position bottom right hand corner.

X out white background, merge visible. Open white background, resize to your liking (I have used 500x500).

Copy and paste your word art. I have added a size 5 fat white gradient glow and then drop shadow. Position top right hand corner.

I have changed the color of the flower as well to match my tag better. You can accomplish this by using your magic wand & selecting the portions you wish to change color. Then adjust/color balance/manual color correction from original color to your new color.

Add copyright and your name. I have used Pointed Brush, Size 55, color #f2a83e and then added the following gradient glow and drop shadow.

Save and you are done.

I hope you have enjoyed my tutorial. Pls feel free to experiment and use my tutorial as a guide.

Please feel free to send me your results. I'd love to see what you came up with.
