“Come Midnight” is a tagger size scrap kit created by Kathi of Kissed by Cari and can be purchased from TKO Scraps. You can visit her blog here.
Thank you so much Kathi for an absolutely stunning kit!

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

~♥~ Let’s get started ~♥~

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

Copy and paste Frame as a new layer.
Click inside of each oval with your Magic Wand.
Selections/Modify/Expand by 4.
New Raster layer below the frame.
Copy and paste Paper 20 Into Selection.

Copy and paste your tube as a new layer.
Move it into position in front of the right side of the frame.
Move the duplicated tube layer below the left side of the frame in your layer’s pallet.
Highlight the paper layer.
Click anywhere outside of it with your Magic Wand.
Highlight the duplicated tube layer.
Tap the delete key.
Change the Properties to Overlay.

Add your embellishments. I used:

Baby’s Breath: Duplicate/Mirror/Erase the bottom stem of both
Fern: Resize 80%/Position behind the left side of the frame/Duplicate/Mirror/Resize 70%
Flutter 5: Resize 25%

New Raster layer.
Select All.
Copy and paste Paper 19 Into Selection.
Apply the mask.
Use your Pick Tool and push the top and bottom inward just a little.
Merge Group.
Crop your image - be careful not to crop any of the mask.

Add your copyrights.

Add your name.
