Kit- Springs Little Things by A Taggers Scrap. Visit Jo's blog here to find where you can get this beautiful jam packed kit.
Tube- I'm using a tube by Shelly Soneja which can be found at The PSP Project. You must purchase this tube and have a valid TPP license to use it.
Mask of choice
Font of choice
Photoshop CS5 or program of choice
I'm on a Mac so when I use Command you may need to use Ctrl

Here we go :)

Open a new canvas 700x700
Place frame 7 in center of canvas, and place paper 15 below it.
On the frame layer, click inside it using the Magic Wand Tool.
Select>Modify>Expand by 3. Select>Inverse.
Hit Delete on the paper layer. Deselect.
Open layer styles and add a drop shadow of choice to the frame.
Place your tube above the frame and add drop shadow.
Decorate your tag with elements from the kit. 
From bottom to top I used:
floral 2
butterfly 2
butterfly 3
greenery 1
greenery 2
flower 10
eggshell 3
flower 8
flower 11
duckling 3
berry 2
berries 3
Add drop shadows where needed.

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 :)
