Click on any image to view at actual size.

Open a new canvas 600 x 600 px - Flood fill white.
Open frame 3 paste as a new layer - Resize 90%
Open Frame (blue oval) paste as a new layer - Resize 20% > Apply Copies "Encircle" with these settings.

Open Frame 5 (pink oval) paste as a new layer - Resize 20% > Apply Copies with the same settings used before > Free rotate 45 degrees Left.
Activate green frame layer grab your magic wand and click inside frame.  Activate blue oval copies layer and hit delete on your keyboard.  Activate pink oval copies layer and hit delete.  The center of your green frame should be empty now.  Keep selected.  Activate green frame layer > Selections > Modify > Expand =10.
Add a new raster layer and flood fill with #c7e4f9.  Effects > Filters Unlimited 2.0 > Color Filters > Bluesky use default settings. Select none.(You can susbstitute a scrapkit paper for this step just paste into selection)
Now we are going to make the yellow beveled frame.  Activate green frame layer and click inside with your magic wand - Selctions > Modify > Expand=3.  Add a new raster layer Open paper 8 and paste into selection.  Keep selected.  Selections > Modify > Contract=10 > Hit delete on your keyboard.  Select none.
Move this layer to the top - Apply Bevel filter with these settings.

Your frame should look like this now.

Activate your white background layer - Add a new raster layer - Flood fill with #a2ceee
Apply DBV Mask 111 > Merge Group 
Now add any elements you want to your tag.  I used:
Element 32 (grass) - Resized 60% - Duplicate > Arrange > Merge Down
Element 39 (cloud) - Resized 50%
Element 9 (sun) - Resized 35%
Elements 16, 17 & 18 (flowers) - Resized 30%
Elements 13 & 14 (flowers) - Resized 25%
Elements 56 & 57 (hearts) - Resized 30%
Elements 30 & 31 (butterflies) - Resized 25%
Element (pink mushroom) - Resized 25%
Element 2 (yellow mushroom) - Resized 15%
(I flood filled the windows with the color of the mushroom because the green grass was showing through)
Element 44 (chick) - Resized 40%
Arrange to your liking - here is my arrangement

Apply drop shadow to all elements.  I used V & H=1 - Opacity=30 - Blur=3 - Black
Paste your main tube as a new layer- Duplicate > Adjust > Blur > Gaussian Blur=3
Change blend mode to soft light.
Activate orignal tube layer and apply radiance filter with these settings:

If these settings don't work for your tube, click on random until you get the effect you want.
Apply drop shadow to this layer - I used: V & H=2 - Opacity 40 - Blur 4 - Black
If you are going to resize your tag, do it now.
Add appropriate copyright, license number and name.
Hide your background layer - Merge visible and save as a PNG

Here is another example using the awesome art of Keith Garvey.

I hope you enjoyed my tut, enjoy your tag and see ya next time!
