I used a gorgeous scrapkit by TammyKat called Bad Girl Club, which you can purchase HERE
Filters - Xero Porcelain and Radiance, Eye Candy 4000 gradient glow.
Font of choice, I used Vijaya.
Mask - WSL mask 327 by Weescotslass. You can download it HERE
Open a new canvas 700 x 700, floodfill white. Copy and paste a triple frame, re-size 80%, image, rotate free rotate left 90. Using your magic wand, click inside each of the three frames, selections, modify, expand by 5. Copy and paste a paper underneath your frame later. Selections, invert delete, don't deselect yet.
