From the kit, open Frame 5 and resize 65%.  Copy and paste as a new layer.

Using the magic wand, click inside the frame.  Selections > Modify > Expand > expand by 5.

Open Tree and resize 85%.  Copy and paste as a new layer and move below the frame.  Hide the frame and tube layers and use the freehand selection tool to draw a selection around the grass to the left side of the tree, like this:


Selections > Promote Selection to Layer.  Tap delete and deselect.  Move the promoted layer to the front of the frame, duplicate two or three times and arrange to create the foreground.  Move the tree to the left behind the frame, see my tag for reference.  Duplicate, mirror and arrange on right side.  Duplicate again and move to the center, so the branches show above the frame.  I duplicated the center one again and moved it down to create a fuller look.  Drop shadow each layer.

Open Half Moon and resize 40%, copy and paste as a new layer above the background layer.  Move to the right side, drop shadow.

Open Pentagram and resize 20%.  Copy and paste as a new layer and sharpen.  Drop shadow.

Zoom in on your candle layer, activate your freehand selection tool and draw a selection around each candle flame.  You should have something that looks like this:



Hide Candle 2 and 3.  Make sure Candle 1 is the active layer.

Effects > Eye Candy Nature > Fire.

Under the Settings tab, select Small, Candle.

Under the Basic tab, change the settings to this:


Click OK.

Hide Candle 1; unhide Candle 2 and make it the active layer.

Apply Eye Candy Fire using the settings above, but click the Random Seed button once.

Repeat for Candle 3.

Activate the background layer and add a new raster layer.  Select all.

Open Paper 2 and paste into the selection.  Deselect.

Apply Gem's mask #166 and merge the mask group.

Crop your tag and resize all layers to a size you like, I resized mine to 675 x 675.
