I used the awesome artwork of Maryline Cazenave
You can purchase her work and a license from CDO
Please do not use Maryline’s work without purchasing a license first.

Let’s Start
Open a new canvas 851 x 315
Open Paper1, copy and paste as a new layer – rename Back 1
Open Paper2, copy and paste as a new layer – rename Back 2
With Back 2 the active layer
Change the blend mode to Soft Light and reduce the opacity to 61

Copy and paste your tube as a new layer – rename Tube
Position where it looks best in the middle of the canvas
Duplicate and on the copy – Adjust, Blur, Gaussian Blur – radius set to 10
Change the blend mode to Overlay and reduce the opacity to 63
On the original tube layer – add a drop shadow of choice – I used:
V&H: 5 / Opacity: 85 / Blur: 13.86 / Color: Black / Shadow on new layer: Unchecked

Open Element10
Copy and paste as a new layer – rename Back Flower
Position so it’s sitting nicely over your tube
Move down between the two Back layers
Change the blend mode to Luminance (Legacy)
Reduce the opacity to 75
Add the same drop shadow

Activate Back 2
Open Element20, copy and paste as a new layer – rename Heart Cloud
Position so the hearts are in the bottom right corner of the canvas
Select your magic wand with these settings:
Mode: Add (shift) / Match Mode: RGB Value / Tolerance & Feather: 0 / Contiguous & Anti-Alias: Checked
Select both hearts, you may have to zoom in and click a couple of times to select it all
Using your Manual Color Correction tool (mini tut here)
Recolor to a darker shade of red, I used these settings:

Duplicate and move the copy above the Copy of Tube layer

Activate the original Heart Cloud layer
Open Element7, copy and paste as a new layer – rename Clock
Position behind Heart Cloud where it looks best
Add the same drop shadow

With the Clock layer active
Open Element9, copy and paste as a new layer – rename White Rose
Image, Mirror
Position towards the top left of the canvas
Add the same drop shadow BUT change the opacity to 40

Open Element17, copy and paste as a new layer – rename Leaves
Position so the two leaves together, go over the White Rose
Add the same drop shadow as used on the White Rose layer
Open Element8, copy and paste as a new layer – rename Blue Roses
Position towards the bottom left of the canvas, so you can still see some of the leaves and white rose layers
Add the same drop shadow

Open Element19, copy and paste as a new layer – rename Sparkles
Position where they look best to the left side of your tube

Activate the Copy of Tube layer
Open Wordart1 and resize to 90%
Copy and paste as a new layer – rename Wordart
Position the swirl part to the left side of your tube
Duplicate and rename Wordart Blur
Move this layer below the Wordart layer
Adjust, Blur, Gaussian Blur – radius set to 4

Open Element12 and resize to 50%
Copy and paste as a new layer – rename Bottle
Position where it looks best near your tube
Add the same drop shadow

Edit, Copy Special, Copy Merged
Paste as a new layer – rename Top Texture
Ensure this is the top layer – Layers, Arrange, Bring to Top
Effects, Plugins, AAA Filters – AAA Multi-Filter
Select the Texture preset and change the Opacity to 50

Change the blend mode to Soft Light

Duplicate and rename the copy Frame
Effects, Plugins, AAA Frames – Foto Frame

Selections, All, Modify, Contract by 17 pixels
Selections, Invert, Promote Selection to Layer
Selections, None
Rename the Promoted Selection – Top Frame
Change the blend mode to Multiply
Lower the opacity to 61

Select your text tool and choose a font – I used Stardom
Set your foreground to null, background set to a color of choice
Create as vector and Anti-Alias both checked
Add your name and position where it looks best
When happy, convert to raster
Effects, Plugins, Eye Candy 4000 – Gradient Glow

Add the same drop shadow

Add your artists copyright, scrap credits and your own taggers watermark as a new layer
Save as a jpg/png
All Done 😀
