Copy and paste Frame 4 & resize 85%. Using your freehand selection tool, select an area similar to this.

 
Copy and paste below your image, below your frame layer, resize 85%, selections invert and hit delete. Select none. Drop shadow your frame. I have used 2/2/40/4 throughout.

Merge down both your frame and image layers and move up to the left a bit.

Copy and paste Tube, resize 75% & drop shadow. Position bottom right corner.

Copy and paste Floral branch 3, resize 75%, flip and rotate right 45. Position left hand bottom corner of your frame.

Position next to your other flower cluster towards the right. Copy and paste Iris and resize 40%. Position on your other flowers towards the top of them.

Merge down all 3 flower layers. Select all/float/defloat. Duplicate twice and rename your layers Flowers 1,2 and 3.

On your first Flowers layer apply the following Xenofex/Constellation.

 
Apply the same effects to your next Flowers layer and hit random once. Apply again to your last Flowers layer hitting random twice. Select none. If you decide not to animate your tag, then just skip the duplicate twice.

Copy and paste your selected word art. I chose to change the color of the dreams part to #3e5c7d and of the do come true part to #252d34. I resized it 85%, added noise (adjust add remove noise/gaussian/mono checked/25%) and added the following gradient glow and then drop shadow. Position top right hand corner.



At this point if you need to, resize your tag. I have used 500x500. Add your copyright and name. I have used Water brush ROB, size 72 #3e5c7d and added the same noise/gradient glow/drop shadow as the word art.

If you are choosing not to animate, then you can save your tag.

To animate, close off Flowers layer 2 & 3 (the lil eye icon in your layer palette), Edit/Copy Merged and paste as new animation in Animation Shop. Close off Flowers layer 1 and open Flowers layer 2, Edit/Copy Merged and paste after current frame in AS. Close off Flowers layer 2 and open Flowers layer  3, Edit/Copy Merged and paste after current frame in AS. Save as gif.
