I activated my Pick Tool (Press K on your keyboard) and stretched the tube lengthwise just a tad.

For the leaves that are at the top and right area of the circle:
Make your tube image active.
Use your Freehand section Tool and section out the area of the leaves:

Color Pallet:
Foreground: #d6b878

Be sure the Font direction is set to go vertical.
I had to reset the kerning of the font to -200 so the letter spacing were closer together.  Your program may vary from mine so toy with the number until you like the font spacing in your name.
Type your name.
