PTU Blue Beauty

This tut was made using PSPx2
And knowledge of PSPx2.

Supplies needed 
PTU An Elegant Christmas from Mellows Graphics HERE. 
I know its a Christmas kit but I like to show what else can be done with 
kits besides what they were made for. Makes it a challenge.
Tube of Choice One with a close up. I used Ismael Rac You need a lic to use his work.
You can get it and his work at XeracX HERE.
Mask of Choice I used MB and SW Timeline Mask by Moonbeans and Spiderwebs HERE.
Font Of Choice I used Voluta Script Pro which is a PTU font.

When you see ** look at tag to see placement for Elements. 
Sometimes it is hard to say just how to place it.
Drop shadows added are unless otherwise stated.

It is always good to check for overhang of shadow on edges of tag. 
I have made a tag or to and not check and when I got done 
I would post it and see the over hang on the sides and think MAN!! lol
