Scrap kit is PTU by Dance In The Rain called A Mothers Love and is available at PFD HERE or at Smiley Creations Shop HERE
The girl is PTU by Alehandra Vanhek and is available at PFD HERE.
You'll need the plugin Eye Candy 4000 - Gradient Glow and you can get that HERE
Mask and Font of choice


Install your plugin before beginning
Open a new transparent image 600 x 600 - we can resize later
Open paper 12, resize to 600 x 600, copy, close and paste as new layer
Load your mask and then merge group
Open paper 3 and minimize for now
Set your background to paper 3, and your foreground to #c4063c
I used the font MTF Toast, but any chunky font would do
Type the word mom
With your magic wand, click inside the letters where it's blank
Fill with the pattern and then move down to the bottom of the tag
Open your Alehandra Vanhek tube and choose the layers you want to use
There are two girls on this tube and different color dresses to choose from
You'll need to resize the girl to about 325 height or so - depends which girl you choose!
Copy, close without saving and paste as new layer
Sit her on top of the word mom
Click your group layer to activate it
Open element 25, resize to 220 width, copy and close
Paste as new layer and move to the bottom left
Open element 14, resize to 280 width, copy and close
Paste as new layer and move to the top right
Open element 4, resize to 330 width, copy and close
Paste as new layer and move near the top right, overlap the fireworks a bit
Click your top layer to activate it
Open element 24, resize to 110 width, copy and close
Paste as new layer and move to the bottom right
Open element 61, resize to 130 width, copy and close
Paste as new layer and move to the bottom right, next to the flower

Open element 31, copy, close and paste as new layer
Move your little girl layer to the top now
Erase any leaves under her hands, and a couple of the flower petals under her
Go through your layers and add drop shadows to your elements
I used 0, 3, 30, 5, black
If you want to resize, do that now before adding any text
Add the copyright info and license number for the Alehandra Vanhek tube
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 Handscript SF, #c4063c
Give it the same Gradient Glow, but don't reduce opacity this time
Merge visible
Save as a png file
