Open a new blank canvas, 850 x 315.
Open PP17 & paste as a new layer onto your blank canvas. With your pick tool, drag the edges so the paper completely covers your canvas.
Now lets add our elements:
StringLights – resize by 50%. Duplicate twice and arrange each copy along the top of your canvas.
Grass2 – resize by 50%. Place to the lower left corner. Duplicate, flip horizontal & place to the lower right corner.
Branch4 – resize by 60%, flip horizontal. Place to the bottom left. Duplicate & place to the bottom right.
Ribbon1 – resize by 60%. Place to the bottom.
Cantaloupe – resize by 40%. Place to the bottom, to the left of center.

Flower3 – resize by 30%. Place to the bottom left corner. Duplicate & place to the bottom right corner.
Flower7 – resize by 40%. Place to the right of the first flower. Duplicate & place to the left side of the flower on the right.
Tag – resize by 60%. Place to the bottom, between the fruit.
Bird – resize by 30%. Place so it appears the bird is perched on the cantaloupe.
Open your tube. Paste as a new layer above the paper layer. Place to the left side. Duplicate, flip horizontal & place to the right side. Merge the two tube layers together. Duplicate, gaussian blur 3.00. Set the blend mode to Screen, 60. On the original layer, set the blend mode to Hard Light, 20.
Copy & paste your tube again, this time above the ribbon layer. Resize as necessary & place slightly to the right.
Add a new raster layer above the top layer. Floodfill with #fffff9. Select all, modify, contract by 3, then press delete. Deselect.
Open PP1. Paste as a new layer. Select all, modify, contract by 2, then press delete. Deselect & merge down.
Add your name, copyrights, & license info. Apply a drop shadow of choice to your layers, then merge visible.
