Open your main tube arrange to your liking - Duplicate - Adjust > Blur > Gaussian Blur-3
Change blend mode to what looks good for your tube - I used Multiply.
Activate original tube layer and Apply Porcelain Filter with these settings:

Apply drop shadow to this layer.  I used V & H =2 - Opacity 40 - Blur 4 - Black

Add elements to your tag now.  I used:
Element 16 - Resized 40%
Element 7 - Resized 50%

Apply drop shadow to promoted bead layer. I used V & H=1 - Opacity 45 - Blur 7 -Black
Merge this layer "down" to paper layer.
Activate green frame layer - Merge "down" > Apply drop shadow.
Apply drop shadow to Flower circle layer, outside bead layer, and any other elements you used in your tag.
I didn't use a drop shadow on the grass layer or the last two "copies" layers.
Apply wordart or make your own.  I made mine using Gradient glow #e83d6b with these settings:

Add copyright, licesne number and your name. 
Hide background layer - Merge visible and save as a PNG.
