tho' any version should work.

Do NOT use any artwork unless you have a license to do so 
& have purchased or obtained the tube legally.

Finally, add a drop shadow.
Position her in the middle of the tag, 
under the word art layers in layers palette.

Next we'll add some elements.
For each one, I added a drop shadow to, 
unless specified otherwise.

drink- 55%. Place off to the left of tag.

candle- 45%. Duplicate.
Place both off to the left in front of the drink, 
near her foot.

bow 3- 50%. Rotate 12 left. Place in top left.

pressed flowers- 50%. Rotate 25 right.
Place on the upper right.
Move it down in layers palette to just
below the purple paper (with the skulls on it).

flower 2- 60%. Add this at the top in layers palette.
Place over the pressed flowers in the corner.

barbed wire heart- 47%. Place on the right side.
Duplicate & mirror.

bear- 55%. Place in lower right of tag

crow- 35%. Place so it's sitting on the edge of the drink.

capsule- 20%. Duplicate.
Move one by her foot.
Mirror the other & place by the candles.

syringe- 55%. Rotate 110 Right.
Place slightly off to the right.

butterfly- Resize one 25%.
Place on on the right, by the barbed heart.
I used this drop shadow:
10 5 70 4, black

Add any other elements, if you prefer at this time.

Then on the white background layer (raster 1),
flood fill with your gradient.
Apply your mask of choice & merge group.
Resize your mask, if needed.

Now, crop/ resize your tag to your own preferences.
Then, add your proper copyrights & watermarks.

Next add your name.
Then add a gradient glow:
And a drop shadow.

Finally, merge visible, save as a PNG & enjoy. =)
