Open cube, resize to 240 width, and move to the right side of the frame and down
I also resized the acorn and put three in the basket at various angles
Merge the three acorn layers into one layer
Then I used my freehand selection tool to remove any parts of the acorns that were over the edge of the basket

Open prettyelves, resize to 300 width, move down and to the left
Open sunflower, resize to 310 width and move down over top of the leaf
Open the boot, resize to 150 width and move to the bottom right
Duplicate this layer and move down and to the right a bit

Open your Stella tube, choose the layers you want to use and resize to 370 width
Paste as new layer and position to suit
Open the barrel, resize to 160 width and move to the bottom left
Open the pumpkin with leaves, resize to 250 width and move to the bottom overlapping the girl and the barrel
Open the fox, resize to suit and move down in front of the girl
If you're going to resize, do that now before adding any text
Add your copyright info and license number for the Stella tube
I used Pixelette, black
Convert to raster
Effects, plugins, Eye Candy 4000, Gradient Glow:
On the color tab choose white
On the basic tab, 7, 25, 100, draw box checked
Reduce the opacity of this layer to 60%
For my text, I used Yippy Skippy, #dd7f19
Give it a gradient glow also, just reduce from 100 to 76 instead
Merge visible and save as a png file
