Here we go :)

Open a new canvas 650x650
Place frame 2 on canvas. Command+T and angle frame to the right.
Place frame 1 behind frame 2. See my tag for placement.
Add paper 18 below frame 1. Using your magic wand tool, click inside the frame.
Select>Modify>Expand by 3. Select>Inverse. Hit delete on paper layer. Deselect.
Now do the same, but adding paper 22 behind frame 2.
Add the following elements from bottom to top..
refer to my tag for placement or just do your  own thing :)

flower 8
feather 2
flower 12
kitty 2
Add your tube to center of tag.

Add drop shadows to tube and elements.

Now for the mask!! There are a few ways to do this...this is how I like to :)
Open your mask and add paper of choice above it.
With the mask layer highlighted, Select>All, Edit>Copy.
On paper layer, hit Q to activate Quick Mask Mode. If you see red, you're doing it right! Edit>Paste. Hit Q again to turn off Quick Mask Mode. The red should disappear and be marching ants.
Now click the Add Layer Mask button at the bottom of your layer palette box.
Rasterize the layer and drag it over to your tag canvas.
Resize and postion as needed.

Image>Trim>Top Left Pixel Color. This will get rid of any excess space on your tag.
Image>Resize if needed. 
Add name and any text of choice.
Add your license and copyright info.
Merge, save and enjoy :)
