Kit- I'm using a fab kit by A Taggers Scrap called City Gurl. This kit is jam packed with unique elements and papers and is a lot of fun to play with!! This kit can be purchased at SATC.
Tube- Anastasia by Alexander McMillan, available for purchase at SATC.
Mask- HorsePlay'sPasture Mask 18 here
Font- Do I Like Stripes? or font of choice
Photoshop CS5 or program of choice
I use a Mac, so when I use Command you may need to use Ctrl

Here we go :) 

Open a new canvas 800x800
Place Frame 6 in center of canvas
Resize and place Paper 3 below frame
Using your magic wand tool (w), click inside the frame.
Select>Modify>Expand by 5. Select>Inverse.
Activate paper layer and hit delete. Command+D to deselect.
Open Brackets and place over the left side of frame. 
Open tube above brackets. Resize and position so she's in the brackets. 
Now add the following elements to your tag, 
resize, angle and drop shadow as needed:
flower 4
hand mirror
brush 2
brush 1
pin 1
makeup case
cocktail glass
car 2

Now let's get our mask ready! Open your mask on a new canvas.
Add a new layer above it, and flood fill with color of choice, 
or use a paper from kit (I used paper 11).
Make sure your mask layer is activated and Command+A to Select All, Command+C to Copy
Activate the paper layer, hit Q to turn on Quick Mask mode
Command+V to paste the should now be tinted red
Hit Q to turn off Quick Mask mode and there should now be marching ants on your canvas
Hit the Add Layer Mask button at the bottom of the layer palette (rectangle  with the circle in it)
Right click- convert to smart object
Right click- Rasterize layer
Drag completed mask to your tag canvas as the bottom layer
I resized and placed mine just on the left side of the tag, but that was my preference :)

Crop, trim and resize your tag.
Add license and copyright info.
Add name and any text.
Merge, save as PNG, enjoy!
