Open a new blank image, 600 x 600.
Open your mask & Paper 10. Paste your paper as a new layer onto your blank canvas. Apply your mask, merge group.
Open Element 33. Resize by 60%. Paste as a new layer above your mask layer.
With your magic wand tool, click inside the frame. Selections, modify, expand by 10. Open Paper 3 & resize by 60%. Paste as a new layer. Selections, invert & press delete. Deselect & move the paper layer below the frame layer.
Now let’s add our elements:
47 – resize by 50%, rotate right. Paste as a new raster layer above the frame layer. Place over the left side of the frame so it wraps around the top.
86 – resize by 50%. Place along the left side of the frame.
25 – resize by 20%. Place to the bottom, slightly to the left. Duplicate, flip vertical & place up and a little to the left so it is over the bottom of the lantern.

Open your tube, resizing as necessary. Paste as a new layer above the lantern layer. Center over your frame. Use your rectangle selection tool to remove any part of the tube that hangs below the black leaves.
Duplicate, gaussian blur 3.00. Duplicate the gaussian layer. On your top tube layer, set the blend mode to Screen, 75. On the middle tube layer, set the blend mode to Hard Light, 60.
Add your name, copyright, & license info. Apply a drop shadow of choice to your layers if desired. Merge visible & save as a PNG.
