Make sure the paper layer is active
selections > invert > delete.
select none
Add  your tube behind the frame and use either
your selection tool again as we have just done,
or use your eraser  to get rid of any bits of the tube
showing outside the frame that you dont want to see.



Now open up the 3 flowers from the kit.
resize them to your liking and then add them as new layers.
I resized mine to 60% and 50% and
then fine tuned the resize by using my deform/pick tool
Add a drop shadow to each flower.
Place them to the left side of the frame.
Add your main tube image
give it a small light drop shadow

Add your Name, and your © and licence info 

Merge all your layers
use your crop tool to trim off any excess  save as  jpg or PNG
there you go your lil' ragdoll is ready for a hug!!
