NOTE: you MAY link to this tut. you MAY print it out for later use offline. you MAY NOT claim it as yours or take anything else from it. this tutorial is ©Ruby/Stormlight, written June 30, 2016.

Supplies needed:
-- PSP
-- main tube of choice.   I am using Asian Bikini by Andy Cooper.  You can purchase her here.

-- scrap kit of choice (it is best to choose one with a variety of floral elements).   I am using a gorgeous matching kit by Designz by Sue, which you can purchase here.
-- Jazzy's basic drop shadow setting of 2, 2, 50, 3 and color black.
-- the plugin EyeCandy Gradient Glow.
-- font of choice.  I am using Biloxi Script.

1.  Open a new canvas, 650x200.  Select a bright colored paper from your kit and paste it as your background.

2.  Paste in your tube and resize as needed.  Apply drop shadow and place where desired.

3.  Open three long thin elements (I chose a long stemmed flower and two ribbons) and paste behind tube, arranging as referred.  Resize elements if needed and apply drop shadow to each.

4.  Choose a large open flower element and paste it directly behind your tube.  Resize 80% and apply drop shadow.

5.  Choose a bird or small animal element and paste as top layer.  Resize 15-25% depending on original tube size.  Apply drop shadow and duplicate once.  Position on flower stem and/or ribbon.

6.  Open two scatter elements of choice.  Resize 50% and place each where preferred.  [optional - Apply drop shadow but lower opacity to 30.]

7.  Create a new raster layer. Select all > modify > contract by 4.  Paste in a second paper and hit delete key.

8.  Create a new raster layer for your name.  Type your name and position it to your liking.  In your plugins menu, go to Eye Candy > Gradient Glow and apply the following settings TWICE:

9.  Create a new layer for your copyright/license and add it on.

1.  Create new canvas - size 180x180.

2.  Paste in bottom paper from banner, resize 50% and position.

3.  Paste in tube, resize 80%.

4.  Paste in open flower from banner behind tube, position to show petals.  Paste in ribbons from banner and place under flower.  resize 65% if needed.

5.  Paste in both scatter elements.  Put sparkles on top of tube and other element under tube.

6.  Repeat step 7 for border, but contract by 3.

7.  Repeat steps 8 and 9 for initial and copyright.
