 Add paper 1 and reduce the size by 45, duplicate change the blend to multiply merge down then duplicate again and change to hard light, place behind the windows and erase the parts hanging past the edges of the windows.
We are gonna use element 21 ro surround the windows front and back resize it by 50. then using your pick tool rotate it ro match the angles of the window. repeat this until you have the window framed.
Place element 11 and reduce by 95% place to the right, duplicate flip and mirror.

Elements 25 and 28 by 50%
Free rotate the leaves 90 to the right
Duplicate the decorative egg and change the blend to multiply.
Mirror element4 reduce by 45%
 Place the eggs around the tag colorizing them to match the tube and kit colors i rotate them about 10 degrees to the left and right in the basket.
Reduce the wordart to your liking. i change the color by activating, add a new raster layer copy/paste paper 8 and change the blend to color. Place element 29 behind each letter reducing the size by 25% then 80% to fit mine.
 i clicked inside the letters expand the selections by 2, Added a new raster layer and flood filled it u a gold gradient. Duplicated it twice added Noise 100 and change the setting for each layer to mixed, Gaussian then added Xenosfex2 constellation small starts and change the seed for each layer.
 Added my name in a thin curly font and applied a gradient glow.
Add your artist URL, CR and your license number.
 To animate I opened the ready made animation in AS. Counted the frames needed and came back to PSP.
Merged the masked layer, background and window frame background layer. Copied came back to AS and pasted as a new animation holding down CTRL +L I held it until I had 15 frames, SELECT ALL then SELECT ALL of the rain layers COPY   then pasted  into selected frames.
Came back to PSP and closed the merged background.
 Merged visible and copy/pasted the tag inot AS as a new animation.
 Came back to PSP unmerged the tag, closed one of the gold gradient layers and Merged again, Copy/pasted after current frame. Then repeated with the laste gold gradient layer. You should have three frames of the tube and elements. SELECT ALL AND CLICK THE PROPAGATE PASTE IN THE EDIT MENU DROP DOWN BOX. Copy then paste onto the rainy merged background. this should paste those three layers in ALL 15 frames. Save as a GIF.
