Add your mask to this layer.

Go back to your frames and erase the parts that wouldn't be visible if you were looking at real frames.
Merge those three layers together.
Add a drop shadow to the one merged layer.

Copy and paste your tube onto your canvas again.
Move it to where you want it and resize to your liking as well.
Once you have that, duplicate this layer.
Hide the top tube layer for now and move the bottom layer below your frames in the layers pallate.
Erase any bits that are outside of the frame that you don't want seen.
Add a drop shadow to this layer.

Change the blend mode to luminostiy.
Duplicate this layer.

Do this to your liking and with a drop shadow of choice.

I used the following in this order:

EL1 (no drop shadow)
Leaves (I erased just a bit of the stem that was sticking out of the top of the frame)

Above the Frames Below the top tube layer:
Sparkles (no drop shadow)

Above the top tube layer:
Butterfly (color inverted and used below the flower to look like leaves)
Butterfly (I added an outerglow)
FlowerString (I erased a bit of the string dangling down)
Butterfly (I added an outerglow)
Butterfly (I made this black and white and added an outerglow)
Sparkles (no drop shadow)

Add your name to your tag.

Top left pixel color, all boxes checked

*****Most Important*****
Add your copyright info to the tag.

If you're happy with what you've done hide the bottom white layer and then save as a .png
and You're done!
