~*~*~ Let's Get Started~*~*~

Start a new canvas

Copy and paste into your canvas

Select your custom shape tool
Find the shape, “Flower 2 Frame”
(you may need to load your preset shapes. To do this click the small arrow on the right, All, Append)
With your foreground set to black, draw out a good sized flower frame shape
Move this layer below your paper
Hold down alt and in your layers pallate, move your mouse between the two layers, once in changes to the three circle right click your mouse once to create a clipping mask.
Merge these two layers together.

Ctrl + Click on the frame layer.
Select → Modify → Expand, by 3
Add a new layer below the frame layer
Flood fill with a color from your paper frame.
Filter → Noise → Add Noise
25%, Gaussian, Monochromatic
Add a drop shadow to this layer

Merge those two layers together.

Open pp12

Open pp2
Resize to 600px by 600px
Drag to just about your white background
Apply your mask to this layer

Add your tube to your canvas.
Resize and reposition to your liking.
Once you like where it's at, duplicate this layer
Have one just above and one just below the frame
Hide the one above for now.
Erase any parts of the tube that are below the frame
Add a drop shadow

Unhide the top tube layer
Erase any parts that are below the frame as well as over the frame
Duplicate the tube
On the top one
Filter → Blur → Gaussian Blur, 3.0
Change the blend mode of this layer to soft light
