To do this tutorial you must have some knowledge of PSP and Animation Shop.

This Tag was made using PSPX2 and Animation Shop. This tutorial is also copyrighted by Young at Heart Designs.
Im using the awesome work of Ismael Rac. If you wish to use his work you must have a license to use his work before using his tubes.
To purchase his tubes and receive a license go to HERE.
The awesome kit I used is called "Glorious Day" by Scrapping Mar and it can be found HERE.

Template #9 by Sapphire:HERE
Mask #11 by Babes Designz: HERE
Plug-in->>Color Dot
Plug-in->Eye Candy 4000->Gradient Glow

I used shadow settings V3,H2, O50, B5, Color Black on ALL elements, layers, text and the tube except for the mask layer.
I also sharpened every element and tube I had to resize to get the quality like the original size.
