I used a drop shadow of vertical 0, horizontal 5, opacity 85, blur 10.

Paste smudge 1, resize 70%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste smudge 2, resize 75%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste broken glass, resize 75%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste frame five,  resize 45% and move into position..  Select the interior of the frame with your magic wand and expand the selection by 20, make a new layer below the frame and paste paper 3 into the selection.  We will come back to this.

Paste the main tube, resize 50%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste grid, resize 70% and duplicate, place in position and apply the drop shadow to each.

Paste grass, resize 80%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste flower buds, resize 35% and flip, place in position and apply the drop shadow

Paste leaves above the frame, resize 40% and duplicate, rotate the original 20 degrees to the left and mirror the copy, place in position and apply the drop shadow to each.

Paste pin, resize 40%, position between the copies of leaves and apply the drop shadow.

Paste clock on the top, resize 17%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste candles, resize 25%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste twig 2, resize 60%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste web, resize 55%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste the quote, resize 50%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste rose, resize 20%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste scatter drugs, resize 30%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste needle, resize 18%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste mouse, resize 35%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Check your layers and make any adjustments.

Paste the tube again between the frame and the paper, mirror it, change the blend mode to “Hard Light” and position in the frame.  Select the interior of the frame and expand the selection as before, invert it and hit delete on the tube, deselect and apply the drop shadow to the frame.

Paste fog, resize 70% and position just below the rose.

When you are all done, crop your tag, add your copyright information and text and export on a transparent background as a png.
