This Tutorial was written on August 23rd 2012 by Ashly
It is of my own creation and any resemblance to any other tutorial is purely coincidental.

Please do not copy and do not post elsewhere.
Do not translate or script.
This tutorial is written as if you have a general knowledge on how to use the program.

***What you'll need***
Program of Choice.
I am using Photoshop CS5
But, if you know your tools you can use any program of choice

Tube of choice.
I am using the artwork of Zlata_M
You must purchase a license to use her tubes and can do so HERE

Scrapkit of Choice
I am using “Firework” by Designs by Sarah
You can find this for purchase HERE

Mask of Choice
I am using Mask141 by Weescotslass Creations

Additional Filters Needed
VanDerLee – Unplugged-X – Pattern Offset

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

Start a new canvas
600px by 600px
Flood fill with white.

Open frame 1
Add to your canvas
Resize down to 80%
Rotate -10 degrees
Add a drop shadow

Open pp1
Resize to 600px by 600px
Add to your canvas below the frame
Use your magic wand to select inside the frame
Select → Modify → Expand, by 5
Invert the selection and on the paper layer press delete
Duplicate this layer
On the duplicate
Filter → VanDerLee → Unplugged-X → Pattern Offset
Change the blend mode to soft light

Open pp5
Resize to 600px by 600px
Add to your canvas just above the white background layer
Apply the layer mask here

Add the tube to the canvas
Resize and reposition to your liking
Move this one below the frame
Erase any of the tube that's outside the frame at the bottom
Move this one above the frame
Select the frame layer
Erase any of the tube that's over the frame
Duplicate this layer
Filter → Blur → Gaussian Blur, 3.0px
Change the blend mode to soft light
Lower the opacity to 60%
Add a drop shadow to the bottom tube layer

Add your tube to your canvas below the frame in between the two paper layers
Resize and reposition to your liking
Erase any that's outside the frame
I did this in each of the two frames around the main tube
Change the blend modes to luminosity
Lower the opacity of both of them to 50%

Now add which elements you'd like
I used the following from the bottom up with a drop shadow unless stated:

candy 2
star 1
firework 1 (no drop shadow)
star 2
ribbon 4
stars 3
stars 1
stars 2
bow 2
word art 3 (added a bit of an outer glow to this one)
button 1
