“Moon Rising” is a tagger size scrap kit created by Jessica of Gothic Inspirations and can be purchased from her store Gothic Inspirations.  You can visit her blog here.
Thank you so much Jess for another STUNNING kit!

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

~~ Lets get started ~~

While making this tag I found I had to make my canvas bigger so the start up size will be a bit larger.  Also in this tutorial you may need to make your own adjustments as to resizing of the elements.

Open up a 700 x 725 canvas.
Flood fill white.

Open up Mask element from the kit.
Make your Selection Tool active set on Rectangle and section out the entire middle of the mask. 
Copy
Paste as new Image.

Color Pallet:
Foreground: #000000
Background: Pattern/Look for your new image.
Angle: Scale 100

Make your Text Tool active.
Stroke set on 1.0
Type your name across your canvas – see my tag for reference.
Give it a slight Inner bevel 2x’s:

Copy and paste Frame 5 as a new layer.
Make your Pick Tool active.  You’re going to use this tool to shape the frame around your name by pulling the corner and top and/or bottom in.  Be sure to leave a bit of breathing room around your name though – see my tag for reference.
Once the fame is fitted around your name, Click inside of it with your Magic Wand.
Selections/Modify/Expand by 6.
New Raster layer below the frame.
Copy and paste Paper 1 Into Selection.
Apply Greg’s Factory Output Vol. II – Pool Shadow 2x’s:
Copy and paste Rocks as a new layer above the paper.
Change the Properties to Color.
Selections/Invert
Tap the delete key.
Deselect.

Close out your white background.
Merge Visible.
Reopen your white background.

Copy and paste your tube as a new layer.
Move both the tube and merged layer into position – see my tag for reference.

Copy and paste Bling 1 as a new layer.
Move into position – see my tag for reference.

Make your Ellipse Tool active set on Draw Circle.
Create a circle beneath the bling – the circle should only go as far as the center of the bling edges.
New Raster layer.
Copy and paste Paper 9 Into Selection.
Be sure it’s centered behind the bling – Convert to Raster layer.
Click anywhere outside of the paper circle with your Magic Wand.
Selections/Modify/Inside Outside Feather:
Both checked
Feather amount: 30
OK
Tap your delete key until you have a nice feathered look to the paper.
Deselect.

Add your elements over the circle paper layer.  I used:
(You may need to make adjustments to size depending on how large you made your circle)
Tree 2

Cloud

Merge Visible the Tree, Moon, and Cloud.
Highlight the circle paper layer.
Click anywhere outside of it with your Magic Wand.
Selections/Modify/Inside Outside Feather:
Use same settings.
Tap your delete key until you have a nice feathered look to the elements.

Duplicate 2x’s for a total of 3 candle layers.
Rename them Candle 1, Candle 2, and Candle 3.

Make your Freehand Selection Tool active again and trace around each flame.
Delete this candle layer.
Highlight Candle 1 layer.
