Okay, let’s get started!
*Open a canvas 700 x700 (we will resize later)
*Paste Frame 6 as a new layer.
*Go to bottom layer and add paper 9 to where you like it. Use your square selection tool select desire area, and then invert, delete selections none. 
Now, let’s adjust the paper a bit!  Go to effects, Texture, >Fur at 25, 25, 25 and 25.
You can now go to plugins, using Xero, Soft Vignette with these settings: Quarter Pyramid 1, invert, Foreground color, solid, all 0's except for Strength it should be at 150.
*Add element 77 as a new layer, resize 50%, move it about to to your desired spot then, reduce opacity to 40%.  Now, with your selection tool go around the inside of the frame, invert and delete.
*Go back to the top layer.
*Add tube as a new layer I used Tube (c)
*Lower the opacity of the tube so you can see the frame below.
Using your selection tool set to 3 follow the outline of the bow and hit delete.
Also remove any overlap of the foot in the middle.
Bring back opacity to 100%

*Resize element 64 to 40% and paste as a new layer in desired spot.
*Duplicate, mirror, and moved to bottom layer, then move up one layer arrange to the left of the frame.
*Add element 13 as a new layer, resize 40% and using your pick tool rotate it to the right a bit, or you can do the same thing using Free Rotate at 25% to the right.
*Go to the top layer and add element 42 as a new layer resize to 30% and place near her foot. 
Duplicate layer, mirror and place next to the other flower.
*Then add element 62, resize 90% and put on the upper right.
*With your selection tool go about the outside of all the images and crop to selection.  Be careful not to cut off anything.
*Merge visible, resize to 80%
*Add your copyright information.
*Add your text size 72, I use a yellow from the tube with a teal gradient and slight drop shadow (black).
*Save as a PNG, you are done, YAY♥
