~ Step 1 ~

Open WSL_Mask7 and minimise for later

Open BCS_RoundFrame
Duplicate close off original
Resize to 400 x 400
Image / Canvas Resize and resize working space to 600 x 600

Anti-alias checked
Click inside the frame and the pin
Selections / Modify / Expand by 8
Selections / Invert
Activate paper layer
Hit delete


Open tube and paste as new layer below frame
Resize as necessary (I resized by 75%)
Duplicate tube and move to layer above frame
Hide duplicate layer
Activate first tube layer and hit delete

Unhide duplicated tube layer and with your freehand tool draw around the bottom half of the tube
Hit delete

Now it should look as thought your tube is tucked into the bottom of the frame but protruding the top

~ Step 2 ~

Resize by 50%
Image / Rotate to the left by 50
Adjust / Sharpness / Sharpen

You should now have something like this:

Resize by 30% then Image / Rotate to the left by 20
Resize by 65% with Bicubic resample
Position to the right on the frame

Paste BCS Painted Bfly Two as new layer
Resize by 30% then Image / Rotate to the right by 20
Resize by 65% with Bicubic resample
Position to the left on the frame

Open BCS Sheer Bfly and paste as new layer
Resize by 20% Smart Size Resample then resize again by 65% Bicubic Resample
Image / Mirror and position to the left above and outside the frame
Duplicate this layer then Image / Mirror
Position just above first sheer butterfly
Go to Adjust / Hue and Saturation / Colourize
with the following settings:
Hue: 240
Saturation: 135
You should now have a green and a pink butterfly

Paste BCS Berry Satin bow as new layer
Resize by 25% and position in the centre of the frame at the bottom

Paste BCS Rose Paper Seven as new layer and move to the bottom above the white background
Layers / New Mask Layer / From Image
Locate WSL_Mask7 in the drop down menu
Source Luminance checked
Invert Mask Data UNchecked
Layers / Merge / Merge Group


~ Step 4 ~

Set the colours in your Materials Palette to the following:
Foreground: #d45883
Background: #FFFFFF

Make sure your foreground is active and your background is hidden

Select your Preset Shape tool and make sure the Anti-alias and Create as Vector are CHECKED
Using the Ellipse shape and holding your shift key with one hand draw out a circle around your frame
Release your mouse and shift keys
Objects / Align / Center in Canvas

Click the arrows in your Materials Palette to swap the colours around
Unhide the background and hide the foreground

Select your text tool and when you see the A of your text tool curve on the line of the circle click to open the text box and type "Cuddles n' Kisses"

In your Layer Palette click the + to open the Vector layer and delete the Ellipse then convert to Raster Layer
Add a subtle drop shadow of your choice

Finally add your name, ©copyright, licence and watermark and you're done!
