I've used the lovely PTU artwork of Shawli. You can purchase her art HERE.
This is a PTU kit called Springlicious by Seven’s Scraps. You can visit her blog for links HERE.
The mask is provided in my supplies which is for personal use only! You can download it HERE.
Font used is Aquarelle.

Open frame20 from kit.
Copy and Paste it as a new layer onto your canvas.

Open papers 27 from kit.
Using the magic wand select inside the open area of the frame.
Selections>Modify>Expand by 5.
Copy your paper and paste as a new layer.
Selections>Invert and hit the delete button on your keyboard.
Selections>None and move the paper layer below the frame.

Copy and Paste your tube on top of the frame.
Arrange it to the left.

Foreground color to white and background color to #b14555.
Duplicate the layer and select the second font layer with the font tool.
Set the stroke width to 0.
Merge the 2 font layer and convert to a raster layer.
