This tutorial was created by Rapsody on July 10th, 2012.
Any similarity to any other tutorial is purely a coincidence.
I have not used plugins or drops shadows but recommend you use them where you see fit.
You may share this tut but please share the only the link, thank you
I am using PSP 14 but any version should work!

We are using the lovely art of Gretchen Raishe-Baskin  GR0009, you must have a license to use this tube. Gretchen’s tubes must be purchased at UpYourArt
This wonderful kit “So Devine” by Leigh Penrod can be found HERE Thank you so much Leigh!
Font AlexBrush which You can find HERE.

We will be using:
Tube GR0009
E31 (White Frame)
P7 (paper)
E16 (beads)
E40 (flower stem)
E10 (baby's breath)
E11 (angel sleeping)
E34 (blue ribbon)
E39 (flowers with ribbon)

**After you use each element close it so you have a clean workspace.

Okay, let’s get started!

*Open a pallet 700 X 700, flood fill white.
* Copy E31 (White Frame) as a new layer, resize 42%
Add a drop shadow AS A NEW LAYER with these settings:
0 0 100 15
I used #ad83f5.
Go to your shadow layer, add FUR texture effect with all settings maxed.
*Go to the original frame layer, with your selection tool touch activate the inside of the frame.
*Go to the white (bottom) layer, & create a new layer. Paste paper P7 into selection.  Select none.
*Stay on the paper layer and add the effect blinds with these settings:
20  50 and white
Do it horizontally, then vertically.
*Copy E16 (Beads) and paste as a new layer.  Resize 20%, move to the right, see my tag for reference.
*Paste E40 (flower stem) as a new layer, resize 12% and move to the right of the frame being careful to not have any overlap on the frame.  Duplicate, and move down a bit and remove any over hang on the frame.
*Paste E10 (baby's breath) as a new layer, resize 8%, mirror and position on the lower left corner.
*Paste E11 as a new layer, resize 19% and position on the lower left as well.
Copy your tube (GR0009) and paste as a new layer, remove butterflies.  Add a drop shadow with the same color and fur settings.
*Return to the top layer, paste E34 (blue ribbon) resize 20% then rotate left 90, position on the right near her hand, see my tag for reference.
Paste E39 (flowers with ribbon) as new layer resize 12% then move to the left side.
*Go to your tube and find the butterfly layers, select the blue one then paste it as a new layer, position on the upper left.
*Make sure everything is where you desire it.
*Merge, select all, float, crop to selection.
* Resize all 70%.
