Open up a 700 x 700 blank canvas.
Flood fill white.
Foreground to gradient –
Copy and paste Shamrock Frame Green as a new layer.
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.

Add your elements. I used:

White Daisy Cluster: Resize 60%/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.

Tap the delete key until you have the feathered effect you like.
