Filters - Xero Porcelain and Radiance, Xenofex 2 Constellation, Eye Candy 4000 gradient glow
Mask - I used Vix Mask 424, which you can get HERE
Font of choice, I used Baby Bowser.
Open a new canvas 700 x 700, floodfill white. Copy and paste Frame 5. Using your magic wand, click inside the frame, selections modify, expand by 5. Copy and paste paper 7 re-size 70%. Selections, invert, delete. Move the paper under the frame layer. Select none.
Copy and paste your close up tube and place above your frame. Erase some bits of your tube which are hanging over the bottom of the frame, so it looks like she's coming out of the frame. Effects, Xero Porcelain, with the default settings, but change the blue channel to 0. Drop shadow.
Drop shadow the frame layer.
Copy and paste your main tube. Effects, Xero Radance with these settings:
Copy and paste ribbon 1 under your close up tube. Re-size 70%, drop shadow.

Add your name. I used gradient glow on mine choosing a colour from my tube.
Close your white background layer & crop merged opaque. Re-size tag to whatever you like, I usually use just under 600 x 600.
