FTU Tut Cupid's Bow

I would like to thank Julie aka Bits N Bobs for letting me work
with her wonderful new tube Cupid's Bow! 

This tut was made using PSPx4.
And knowledge of PSPx4.

Supplies needed 

Tube of choice. I used one by Bits N Bobs.
You need a license to use her work. You can get it 
and her work here at Pics for Design.
FTU kit Love by Kittz (9th one down)and can be gotten at the Creative Misfits Blog.
Mask of choice. I used Forum Mask 14 MB and SW by Moonbeams and Spiderwebs.
Font of choice. I used Times New Romance.

Go ahead and open list of Things here used and go ahead and resize them
by the percentage by each item. If there is no number no need to resize.

Forum Mask 14 MB and SW
Love Corner Border
Love Cluster Flower
Love Birds - 30%
Love Dragonfly - 20%

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
