Layer 6 - Fill with a color of your choice. I used #59337E. Select All; Float; Defloat; Copy and paste Tube Close-up; resize as necessary; move to position you like. Invert selection; Delete; Select None. Change Blend Mode to Luminance or something that suits your tube. Merge these two layers together then add Shadow.
Open Heart 5. Copy and paste above Layer 7. Resize 10%; Mirror; place where you like. Add Shadow.
Layer 8 rectangle - I used Color #9375B1. Then effects Tramage - Tow The Line with the following:
Control 0: 64
Control 1: 130
Control 2: 36
Control 3: 12
* My filter is in Filters Unlimited - your Controls might be different if using stand-alone of Tramage.
Open Paper 2; copy. On Layer 9 Large Heart Select All; Float; Defloat. Add New Layer, paste Paper 2 Into Selection. Select None. Add Shadow.
Layer 10 - Wordart. I used a color from the Kit and added Noise.
Add as many other Elements to decorate your tag as you wish.
This is where I delete the white layer and then crop tag to visible layers. Then I resize the tag; All Layers.
Now add your Credits. Adding them after resizing your tag will ensure that they remain crisp; clear; and easy to read.
Add your Name and any Effects. I used Black for my Name and EyeCandy Gradient Glow with a medium Pink.
I saved my tag in Transparent PNG Format.
