My additional supplies can be downloaded from here:

Plug ins needed: Mura meister Copies and EC4000 Gradient Glow

Create a new canvas 600 x 600 white.

Open your HEART RIBBON 1 and resize by 30%. Copy and paste as a new layer onto your canvas. Do Not Move It! Open Mura Meister Copies and apply these settings:

Click ok. Now with your Lasso Tool, draw a circle just inside the ribbon frame edge like this:

Open your paper #2 or of your choice. Resize it by 75%. Copy and paste as a new layer. Then Selections, Invert, Delete. Select None. Move this below your frame layer. Drop shadow frame 2/2/55/5.00

On your paperback layer you just made: select all, float, defloat and paste a close up of your tube onto the canvas. Select, invert, delete. Select none. Double click on your tube layer in the pallets and change the opacity to 25% or to your liking. Merge down 1. Highlight your frame layer and merge down 1.

Layers, new raster layer, select all. Copy paper 4 and back on your working canvas, paste INTO SELECTION. Select none. Apply your Gabby mask 13: Layers >New Mask Layer>Gabeemask13 with "Invert Mask Data" Checked. Merge group. Image, resize by 85% then by 95%. Sharpen.

Select your frame layer once again. Copy and paste the RED FLOWER from my supplies kit. Apply Mura Meister Copies again with the same settings but change the number amount to 16. Drop shadow 2/2/55/8.00 Move this flower circle below your heart frame.

Select your frame layer again in the pallets. Copy and paste your tube and place where you desire. Resize if needed but don't forget to sharpen it if you do! Drop shadow 2/2/75/15.00

Copy LIPS 1 from my supplies and paste onto the canvas. Move to the top of your heart frame and position on the knot. With your eraser tool, erase the string on the knot so it looks like it is tied in. Go to your EyeCandy 4000 Gradient Glow and on the Color Tab, click the big colored box and change the color to B03a66. Click on the Basic Tab and change the glow width to 3.00. Ok. Drop shadow 2/2/45/3.00
