Butterfly (resize 26%)

You can always refer to the sample for placement of anything!
copy and paste paper 6, layers, Load/save mask, load mask from disc choose the mask, merge group. Adjust, add noise with
these settings:
Copy and paste the frame. With the magic wand, click inside the frame, selections, modify by 3, invert, copy and paste
paper 5 hit delete on the keyboard. Selection, select none, move below the frame. Now then copy and
paste tube. Adjust placement and duplicate, drag below frame, and erase anything outside the frame, add dropshadow, Now on the
top layer erase part of the tube where it covers the frame and the clovers on the frame. Now it should look like
the tube is below the frame except the hand with the beer.
copy and paste the clovers and drag under the frame and paper layers. See example for placement. Add dropshadow.
copy and paste gold coins, drag down below the bottom tube layer.

then here is the settings for the gradient glow I used around the text.
gradient glow with these setting:
Glow Width: 3
Soft Corners: 25
Opacity: 100
Adjust the sliders on the bar to your liking, and use what color you choose.
You are almost done, now you need to Crop and check DPI is at 72. Resize to what you want, I resized to 500 pixels.
add the copyright and any license numbers if need be. Add your name, I used the same settings as above for the
