“Over the Rainbow” is tagger size scrap kit created by the artists at PSP Tube Stop - Lisa Cree, Joanna Bromley, Mitzi Sato Wiuff, and Constanza Ehrenhaus and can be purchased here.
Thank you to the participating artists for a really beautiful kit!

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

~~ Lets get started ~~

Open up a 700 x 700 blank canvas.
Flood fill white.

Color Pallet:
Foreground: #8cbbf2
Background: #dff3fc
Foreground to gradient –
Style:  Linear
 Angle: 0
Repeats: 0
Invert unchecked.

Copy and paste Shamrock Frame Green as a new layer.
Resize 65%
Free rotate Left 5 degrees.
Move both frames into position – see my tag for reference.

Make your Freehand Selection tool active set on Point to Point and section out the area of the frame that can be seen within the frame on the right:

Tap the delete key.
Merge Visible both frame layers.

Use your Freehand Selection Tool again and outline the merged frames.
New Raster layer below the merged layer.
Flood fill with the gradient.
Copy and paste the following elements below the frame, tapping the delete key after each is moved into position – see my tag for reference.
Rainbow 1:  Resize 130%

Add your elements.  I used:
Leprechaun Girl:  Resize 90%
Rainbow Nature:  Resize 90%
Ribbons Double Bow Red:  Resize 50%/Free rotate Right 90 degrees/Mirror
White Daisy Cluster:  Resize 60%/Mirror
Butterfly Purple:  Resize 15%
Sparkles 2
Butterfly Pink:  Resize 10%/Mirror
Green Grass layer:  Duplicate/Match ends up so it created grass across the canvas.
Use your Freehand Selection Tool, section around the grass making sure the line touches the bottom of the grass element and staying away from the top of the element.
Selections/Modify/Inside Outside Feather:
Both checked
Feather amount: 17
Tap the delete key until you have the feathered effect you like.

Highlight your white canvas.
New Raster layer.
Select All.
Copy and paste Butterfly Paper Into Selection.
Apply the mask.
Use your Pick Tool and pull the sides out just a little.
