Font Lover’s Quarrel by Rob which is a ptu font if you don’t own it any scripty font will do @ 120 pt.

We will be using:
Tube CH0002 Autumn’s Dust
hpd_GDFD_26 60% (frame)
 hpd_GDFD_60 @75%
Sun Flower Garland hpd_GDFD_32 @ 50%  rotate 90
Swing hpd_GDFD_41 50%
Grass hpd_GDFD_59 @75%
Multi color flowers hpd_GDFD_43 @20%
Flower hpd_GDFD_42 20%
Ducks hpd_GDFD_4 20%
Yellow bow hpd_GDFD_7 resize 40% rotate 30 left
**After you use each element close it so you have a clean workspace.

Okay, let’s get started!

*Open a canvas 600 x600 flood fill white. I like to have the white so I can see my creation better as I work on it.  We will delete this later as well as resize.
hpd_GDFD_26 (frame) paste as a new layer. Resize 60%m and move up.
*With your selection tool touch the inside of the frame, create a new layer and paste hpd_GDFD_Paper1 into selection.  Select none, move down (below the frame) duplicate.
*Go to the bottom paper layer, resize 120% then add Texture effect fur with these settings::
Blur 100, Length 100, Density 100, Transparency 50.
*Return to the upper paper layer, add hpd_GDFD_60   resize 75%.
*Go to the frame layer (top layer) and add hpd_GDFD_32 (Sun Flower Garland) rotate 90% left, resize 50%.  Position to desired location, use my tag as a reference.  Duplicate, mirror and position so it is not even with the other side.
*Get your Carrie Hall tube CH0002 and paste as new layer, see my tag for positioning.
*Go to layer below your tube, and paste hpd_GDFD_41 (swing) as a new layer, resize 50%, position like my tag, remove any extra chain on the top.
*Copy hpd_GDFD_59 (grass), paste as a new layer, resize 75% and mirror.  With your selection tool, select the left side only, cut, then paste closer to the other side. Select none, duplicate. Go to the original layer below and do the same texture effect as above, (Blur 100, Length 100, Density 100, Transparency 50.) if any of the tube layer’s foot is peeking through on the bottom remove it.
*Return to the upper grass layer, past hpd_GDFD_43 (multi-color flowers) resize 20%, using my tag as a reference copy and paste into selection (same layer) as many times as you desire please use my tag for reference.  If any over hangs, select and delete.
*Copy and paste
hpd_GDFD_42 (white flower) as a new layer, resize 20%, copy and paste as a new selection about 6 times remove any stems that overlap.
*Go to your tube layer, paste
hpd_GDFD_4 (ducks) as a new layer, resize 20%.  Duplicate, position to the left of your first duck.  Duplicate bring this layer above the grass, see my tag for reference, lower opacity to 80%.
hpd_GDFD_7 (yellow bow)resize 40% rotate 30 left, see my tag for reference.
*Make sure everything is where you like it, check for anything stray and remove them, then delete the bottom white layer, merge visible, select all, float, crop to selection.

*Apply your copyright, url, and license number.
*Add names, using
Rob’s Lover’s Quarrel, using 2 colors from your tag,  I added very slight yellow gradient glow.
*Save as a PNG, you are done, YAY
