Apply WSL_Mask248 - Merge group.
Open GlitterSplatter - Paste as a new layer - Resize to 105% - Sharpen - Duplicate - Mirror - Flip.
Open BlingFlower - Resize to 25% - Sharpen More - Apply Copies Encircle with these settings:

Grab your magic wand and click inside the frame - Selections - Modify - Expand - 10
Open Paper PP19 - Paste as a new layer - Selections - Invert - Delete - Select none.
Move paper under frame in your layer palette .
Open Divider - Paste a a new layer - Resize 50% - Sharpen - Move slightly to the right. Use my tag for reference. (There will be overhang out of the frame but we will take care of that in a minute).  Apply drop shadow of your choice - I used V & H 2 - Opacity 40 - Blur 4 - Black.
Open ChaseLounge - Paste as a new layer - Resize to 65% - Sharpen - Arrange to bottom left - Apply same drop shadow.
Open Table - Paste as a new layer - Resize to 25% - Sharpen - Arrange to bottom right - Apply same drop shadow.
Open Glass - Paste as a new layer - Resize to 40% twice - Sharpen - Arrange on top of table - Apply same drop shadow.
Open Chandelier - Paste as a new layer - Resize 50% twice - Sharpen - Arrange to the right - Duplicate - Using your Move tool move the duplicate over to the left - Apply same drop shadow to both.
Now lets get rid of the overhang.
Activate circle frame layer - Click inside with your magic wand - Selections - Modify - Expand - 10 - Selections - Invert.
Activate Table layer - Hit delete.
Activate Divider layer - Hit delete - Select none.
If you resized differently and other layers have overhange, cut it off now.
Your tag should look like this now.

Now add any other elements you want to your tag.
I used:
RoseBouquet - Resized to 40%
Champane - Resized to 35% - Mirrored
Paste your tube as a new layer - Arrange - Duplicate - Adjust - Blur - Gaussian Blur - 3 - Change blend mode to soft light.
Activate original tube layer - Apply Radiance with these settings. 


Apply same drop shadow.
Activate circle frame - click inside with your magic wand - Selections - invert.
Activate your main tube layer - grab your eraser tool and erase the overhang from your tube.
Activate the duplicate tube layer and erase the overhange visible - Select none.
Apply wordart or use your own.
If you are going to resize your tag, do it now.
Apply appropriate copyright, license number and your name.
Hide white background layer - Merge visible, save as a PNG and enjoy!
