I used the beautiful art of Anthony Guerra.

Lets begin!

1. Open a new canvas 600x600 and fill white.

2. Copy and paste paper 3 from Lisa's Kit as a new layer, layers, new mask layer, from image, look for my mask and hit OK. Delete the mask in the layers palette and answer yes to the question asked. Ungroup layers.

3. Grab your preset shape tool set to rectangle, outer - white, line width - 3, inner a paper of choice, draw out a large-ish rectangle and centre it in your canvas. Convert to raster and add a drop shadow of choice. Repeat this step another 2 times using alternate papers and sizes, see my tag above for reference.

4. Copy and paste the one of the frames as a new layer, resize by around 60% and add a drop shadow of choice. Rotate it slightly, adjust, sharpness, sharpen. Copy and paste the other frame as a new layer, resize this layer also and add a drop shadow of choice. Rotate it slightly, adjust, sharpness, sharpen.

5. Copy and paste a flower of choice from the kit as a new layer, resize by around 70%. Add a drop shadow of choice. Place it near one of the frames. Do this with the other flower from the kit also.

6. Copy and paste a ribbon from the kit, resize by around 70%. Add a drop shadow of choice. Copy and paste the dangling robbon from Lisa's Kit, resize by 70% and add a drop shadow of choice. place it between both frames.

7. Copy and paste your tube of choice as a new layer and move it under your frame layer. Place it into position now, make the frame layer active and click inside the centre with your magic wand, selections, modify, expand by 5, selections, invert, back on your tube layer, hit delete on your keyboard, selections, select none. Repeat this step for the other frame, but mirror your tube.

8. Add your copyright information, watermark, and name. I applied a gradient glow, width - 3, colour, a complimenting colour, to my name. Save as a jpeg and you're all done.
