Paste hearts56 as a new layer above the mask layer, resize & sharpen
Add your tube and position below the grass layer
I added the bucket50 and butterfly46 as well as the rope59 which I rotated with the raster deform tool so it looks like it is coming out of the bucket
I also added heartline91 along the bottom of the grass
Resize the bunny78 and paste as a new layer, position where you think it looks best
When happy with your tag, hide white background & merge visible, resize by 85%
Open the wordart97 and choose the words you want on your tag by drawing around them with your freehand selection tool, copy & paste as a new layer & resize, sharpen more

Duplicate your tag so that you have 41 layers
