Resize the the trick or treat wordart and place along the bottom
Resize the bat & paste as a new layer
copy & paste the flair & spooky flair, resize both and position on the top corners, drop shadow
Copy & paste tag2, resize & drop shadow and position so it looks like it is hanging from the bow
Hide background layer & merge visible all other layers
