just scroll down a little to find it.
Drop Shadow = DS = 2,2,50,5 black
Let's get started.
Open my supplies
800 X 800
1.) EL 16 -Copy & Paste = C&P as New raster Layer = NRL-- move it up a little
2.) EL 17 - Resize = R -50%-- sharpen --unsharp mask --C&P as NRL-- place on right side of canvas..DS--tag reference = TR
3.) Grass--C&P as NRL-- place paper to 1/4 behind gazebo-TR-duplicate = dup. & mirror--merge down = MD--then crop-opaque-800X800-ok
4.) EL 2-R=50% & 80% X 2 ---unsharp mask--C&P as NRL--place on gazebo-DS--dup.-R = 80% sharpen--place on other pole--TR
5.)EL 27-- R = 70%--sharpen--C&P as NRL-- place on bottom--DS
6.) Tube --C&P as NRL--resize if needed-- place tube on bridge--dup. and move this one below bridge--with freehand selection tool -(these settings) point to point, add shift --feather = 0 ---smoothing = 0 -- anti-alias checked-- go around the top tube as shown in EX. 1--Edit --cut--select none-
7.) Do the same for the top of the tube,as is shown in EX. 2--when finished MD all 3 layers-
8.) EL 8 --R = 50 % and 70%-- unsharp mask---C&P as NRL--place it to the left of tag, move layer below tube layer--DS--TR- dup. R= 70% sharpen-move this one to the right of tag --TR and place layer below gazebo layer.
9.) EL 47 ---C&P as NRL--DS--move to the right side of tag- place this layer right above background..TR
10.) EL 5 -R = 40% X 2-- unsharp mask--C&P as NRL-- place on bottom of tag--right side--DS-TR--dup. & R=70% -sharpen--place these any where you wish--I place a few around mine--TR
11.) EL 6 -R = 50% & 80% X2--unsharp mask--C&P as NRL-- place it next to the flower pot- dup.-DS- move this one to left side-TR-move  layers below tube layer. 
12.) EL 12-R = 50% X2--unsharp mask--C&P as NRL-- place this behind gazebo and then move the layer above background--DS--TR
13.) EL 15-R = 50% -- unsharp mask--C&P as NRL-- place on right side near the top--DS--TR--place this layer above background layer.
14.) EL 24-R=50% X 2--unsharp mask--C&P as NRL--place inside gazebo -dup. and place this one behind the gazebo,move the layer behind gazebo layer--on top layer--grab your freehand selection tool again,same settings and go around the top of the swing,making sure your on top layer of swing--edit --cut--DS bottom swing--TR
15.) EL 3-R = 10% & 75% X3--unsharp mask---C&P as NRL-- place in front of gazebo--DS--TR
16.)EL 35-R=20% --unsharp mask--C&P as NRL--DS-place it  in front of tube--free rotate-left-30--TR
17.) EL 39-R=20% & 60% X2--unsharp mask---C&P as NRL--DS--place in front of the gazebo--TR-dup. R = 60% sharpen & place around your canvas--TR
18.) EL 4--R=30%--unsharp mask--C&P as NRL--DS- place it behind the gazebo on the left side, move layer to above gazebo layer--TR
19.) EL 13-R= 30%-unsharp mask--C&P as NRL--place it on the bench--DS--TR
20.) EL 18-R= 30% & 70%X2 --unsharp mask- --C&P as NRL--free rotate-left-90- place it on the to of bridge--DS--TR
21.) EL 34-R=40% --unsharp mask--C&P as NRL--place on upper left top --DS--move layer below gazebo-TR
22.) EL 41 - R = 15% & 80% X4--unsharp mask --C&P as NRL--place on left side of Bridge-DS-TR--now dup. move it over and down to the bottom -- TR--dup.- mirror- you might have to move it over a bit...TR
23.) EL 23-R= 10%--unsharp mask--C&P as NRL--on top layer--place infront of gazebo and to the right.--DS--TR
24.) EL 25-R=40% X2--unsharp mask--C&P as NRL--DS--place it on bench---TR
25.) open a new canvas 800 X 800--EL 9 --C&P as NRL--Dup. R=80% -- sharpen-move it to the left side-and move it down a little--dup. & as many as you wish to make a pretty bouquet--once happy--merge as NRL---onto your tag-place it in front of the tube and bench-DS--TR
26.)EL 44-R=30% & 60 % X2--unsharp mask--C&P as NRL--place on left side near the top flowers-DS--TR--dup.-R=80% -sharpen--move it down (or place them where you wish) TR
27.) EL 43- R = 20% - unsharp mask --C&P as NRL--free rotate left 25 -- place on bottom right of the flower box--DS--TR---dup.--R= 80% - sharpen-place it up a little (or where you want) TR
28.) make sure all layers are open-but bottom layer-(close it)--merge visible--R = 63%-sharpen
29.) Sky- --C&P as NRL--make sure its  above the bottom layer 
30.) Cloud--R-= 80% sharpen---C&P as NRL-- (drop shadow if you want dark clouds) place the cloud where you want on the tag..dup. R -80%--sharpen --move it just a little lower than 1st one.
31.) Now open bottom layer and Merge visible all layers. sharpen
32.) Add ALL Copy right information,and your Name.. save as png.
Thank you for doing my tut.
