*Go back to your upper tube layer and add Ball 01 rotate left then duplicate and mirror position to your liking.

*Go back to the top layer, and add Bow 02 to the center of the frame add your white drop shadow with the same settings as before
.
*Make sure everything is where you like it, then delete the bottom white layer, and merge visible, select all, float, crop to selection. 
*Re-size 80%.
*Apply your copyright, url, and license number.
*Add names, using your Jackie O, using off white from your tube and a gold gradient, use the drop shadow from above.
*Save as a PNG, you are done, YAY
