I used a drop shadow throughout of vertical and horizontal 2, opacity 70, blur 5.
Open a new transparent canvas 650 by 575 pixels and flood fill with white.
Open pd12-pp-01 and copy. Make a new layer on your canvas, select all, paste the paper into the selection, deselect and apply the mask. Resize 70%.
Open pd12-frame-02 and paste as a new layer. Resize 65%.
Open pd12-pp-04 and copy. Select the interior of the frame with your magic wand and expand the selection by 3, make a new layer below the frame and paste the paper into the selection, deselect. Apply the drop shadow to the frame. Close off your white background layer and mask layer and merge visible, reopen the closed layers.
Open your tube, copy and paste as a new layer, resize as needed, place in position and apply the drop shadow.
Open pd12-band-aid and paste as a new layer. Resize 60% and rotate 30 degrees to the left, drag down below the tube, place in position and apply the drop shadow.
Open pd12-flower-01 and paste as a new layer. Resize 55% and duplicate, resize the duplicate 85%, place both flowers in position and apply the drop shadow to each.
Open pd12-shot and paste as a new layer. Resize 75%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.
Check the positions of your layers, when you are happy, crop your tag and add your copyright information and text, then export as a jpeg with compression set to 5 or on a transparent background as a png.
