Ready to begin?
Awesome!

Open a new image 700 X 700 with a white background.

Open Frame2, resize by 90 percent and paste as a new layer, add a drop shadow.

We are going to make a gradient for the background for the frame, choose 2 colors from the frame, take your selection tool and draw out a retangle inside your frame. Make sure you have it big enough were none of the white background will show. Above your white layer add a new layer, flood fill your selection with your gradient.
I then applied Penta - Color Dot on the default settings.

Open Grass Flowers, resize by 70 percent, paste as a new layer and position to where you like it, delete anything that sticks out from the frame. Apply a drop shadow to this.

Copy and paste your tube as a new layer. I positioned mine so that the top of the hat is sticking out over top the frame. Once positioned duplicate and move this tube layer below the frame layer. On the duplicated layer go to Adjust -  Blur - Gaussian Blur - radius set at 3.00. Apply a light drop shadow to this layer. On your top tube layer delete anything that is showing on the bottom of the tube. See my tag for reference if needed.

Open wordart 3, resize by 70 percent, paste as a new layer, move this to the very top of your layers. Posistion at the bottom of the frame, see my tag for reference  if needed. Apply a drop shadow.

Open Flower6, resize by 40 then 70 percent. Paste as a new layer and move to the top left of the frame. See my tag for reference of needed. Apply drop shadow.

Open Flower4, resize by 40 then 60 percent. Paste as a new layer and move to the top left of the frame overlapping the brown flower. See my tag for reference if needed. Apply drop shadow.

Open Flower9, resize by 40 then 50 percent. Paste as a new layer and move to the top left of the frame overlapping the blue flower. See my tag for reference if needed. Apply drop shadow.

Open fence, resize by 70 percent, paste as a new layer and position below your tube layers but above your flower layer. Delete anything the shows past the frame layer. Apply a drop shadow.

Copy and paste paper6 above your white background layer, apply mask to this layer. I then took my pick tool and made it smaller until it was right around my frame. You can also resize if you don't have this. This is optional:
With my mask layer highlighted, I went to Effects, Textures, and used Mosaic Antique with these settings:
Grid Settings (both) 60
Symmetic checked
Tile Diffusion - 60
Grout Width - 2
Grout Diffusion - 50

Open star 3, resize by 30 percent and paste as a new layer, move to the bottom right of your frame, see my tag for reference if needed. Apply a drop shadow.

Open star 1, resize by 25 percent and paste as a new layer, move to the bottom right of your frame overlapping your blue one, see my tag for reference if needed. Apply a drop shadow.

Open sheriff, resize to your liking and paste as a new layer right above cowgirl to the left, free rotate 10.00 degrees to the left. Apply a drop shadow.

Open starswirl thats in my supplies and place above your mask layer around your tag. I selected a little star and pasted it on top of her hat.
