For this tutorial you will need:

ScrapKit *Magic of the Stars* by Tina of Tina's Magical World.
You can purchase it HERE.

I am using the artwork of Selina Fenech, you can find her licensed art at CILM.

Let's get started:

Open a new image 550x550 and background set to white. Copy & paste paper2 as a new layer. Open Becky_Mask022, Layers/New Mask Layer/From Image and find the mask in the drop down list. Delete mask layer, and merge group. Effects/Texture Effects/Weave/Set to Gap Size/2, Width/7, Opacity/3, Weave & Gap Color/#FFFFFF, Fill gaps checked.

Copy & paste doodlestars1 as a new layer. Effects/Xenofex 2/Constellation/Settings/Star Field/Keep original image. Add drop shadow. Duplicate. Image/Mirror/Image/Flip. Copy & paste circle_starframe3 as a new layer.

Copy & paste stars_doubleframe1 as a new layer and resize as needed. Copy & paste paper5 as a new layer. Copy & paste your tubes or images as new layers, and place in both starframes. Using you Magic Wand, click inside both frames, Selection/Modify/Expand by 5/Selections/Invert and hit Delete on your paper and tube layers. Copy & paste starbow4 as a new layer and place at the center bottom of the largest starframe. Add drop shadow to the frames, tubes/images, and bow.

Add any additional ribbons, flowers, butterflies, or elements of your choice.

Crop or resize to your liking. Add your text, copyright info, and watermark, and save as a jpg, png, or gif file.
