I know my blog is in sad need of an update!  It has been awhile since I got a chance to write a new tut!  I decided to use the beautiful PTU kit Honestly by Kara at Sweet Cravings Scraps!  Here is the preview and the tutorial to follow!
For this tutorial you will need the following:

Do the same on the lower left hand flower copy and paste your ribbon puff adjust to your liking. Duplicate and adjust on the right side. See example. on the black strip, effects, texture effects, weave with this settings: Gap size 5 weave color black. Width 12 Gap color white, Opacity 28, check fill gaps.
select the long white rectangle. Selections, float, defloat, invert paste paper 12, hit delete.

I hope you remembered to add your dropshadow to everything. If not, then now would be the perfect time to do so.  For the word art (Optional) I used Segoe for the blocky wording. Bold and stroke width on 6. use color of your choice.
I used color # b98fb2 Type out the words you want, I used the name of the kit Heavenly all in caps. Now this step is optional Add glass effect with these setting:

Then add a gradiant glow with the previous settings only using white instead of black. Add your dropshadow.
I used Satisfaction for the words Beautiful on bold.
Crop and resize to your liking. Now add your name and copyright
Make sure the DPI is at 72 and save! you are done! Simple and easy.
