And knowledge of PSPx2.

Supplies needed 
PTU Sorrowful You from Tasha's Playground HERE.

his store HERE.

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 would post it and see the over hang on the sides and think MAN!! lol
