so far you should have something like this....

resize by 80%
with your freehand selections tool
here is my settings

make the ribbon shorter by selecting the portion you want to remove , double click to close the selection then delete the excess by hitting the delete button on your keyboard

add a drop shadow i used horizontal 3 vertical 2 opacity 90 blur 7
open up flower2 resize by 30% add a shadow arrange over the bow of the ribbon

open up SpookyGlitterMix4 paper, make a rectangle selection wth your selection tool, make the seelction almost the width of the paper but only select 2 glitter lines, then cut and paste your selection on to your canvas, now resize by 50% ad a drop shadow an arrange under the ribbon
so far this is what you should have

for the text i ued LDJ Jilly Nilly font - type out the text Queen of the Night
font size 48
add a shadow, then add your name
now for the tubes...
you do not have to use black and white tubes, i didnt...
I used colour ones and made them black and grey

copy and paste your tube as a new layer, i Started with Kitty kat close up resized by 80%
adjust hue and saturation just like you did with the frame...
then the brightness and contrast just as before
then do the same for 2 more tubes from the same artist ..arrange them all within the frame..
next make the frame the active layer...

then select the magic wand selection tool, go to selections - modify - expand by 10 then selections invert and make the tube layer your active layer and hit the delete key to delete the excess...
now go to selections - none

repeat for each tube...make sure the frame is over the tubes so no edges show...smply by sliding the tube layers below te frame layer
then add a drop shadow to your frame
add the artist's copyright and your name and save your tag
