1 tube of choice - I used the artwork of Rachel Anderson and can be purchased from CDO. You must have a license to use.

Mask here. I’ve had it for many years and never knew who it belonged to. Please email me if you know who created it so I can give proper credit.

“Midnight Escape” is a tagger size scrap kit created by Jen of Jen’s Sweet Tempations and can be purchased from Lollipops n Gumdrops. You can visit her blog here.
Thank you Jen for a magical midnight kit!

This tutorial was written assuming you have a working knowledge of PSP.

Copy and paste your tube as a new layer.

Copy and paste Décor 3 as a new layer.

Position it behind both rectangles so that just the grass stick up - erase the part of the element that you don’t want sticking out from behind and duplicating the element as many times as you like.
See my tag for reference.

Add your embellishments. I used:

Convert to Raster layer.
Give it a slight Inner Bevel:
