Lets Begin :

Start by opening a 800 X 650 transparent canvas (Don't worry we will crop it later)
Now activate your text tool, set your font to Impact, Size : 150 Pixels, Color : #e517b3. Type out the name you would like on your tag in ALL capital letters.
Position your name in the center of your canvas. 
(Now leave this layer alone and we will come back to it shortly)

Now open your Rose element, copy & paste it as a new layer onto your canvas ,then re-size it to 35%. Using your move tool move your Rose element to the left end of your name. Now go to Adjust, click Sharpen & apply a drop shadow.
 To apply a drop shadow go to Effects, click 3D Effects, then click Drop Shadow.
You can either apply my settings below, or you can use your own :-)

Click Ok.
Now in your layers pallet, right click on your Rose layer, then click Duplicate, now go to Image and click Mirror.IF you need to use your move tool and move your duplicated Rose element to the right end of your name.

Now open your Ribbon1 element, copy & paste it as a new layer onto your canvas, re-size it to 20%. Using your move tool, move your Ribbon1 element at the top of your name and try to place it in the center.
Go to Adjust, click Sharpness, then click Sharpen.
Apply a drop shadow. (To apply a drop shadow go to Effects, click 3D Effects then click Drop Shadow.
You can either use my settings below your your own :
Click Ok.

Now Open your Sparkles element, copy & paste as a new layer onto your canvas, then re-size your sparkles to 65%, position so that it covers your name and Rose elements.
Apply a small drop shadow if you would like.

Now activate your text tool again, click on a empty space on your canvas, Set your font to ,
Al Sandra , Size:50 Color: Black (#000000)
Now type out the name or phrase you would like to use. I used a friends screen name as my phrase but you can choose anything you want to put there.
We will come back to this text in just a minute.
Once you have your phrase/name applied, it is time to crop your tag, so activate your crop tool and be careful not to crop off any of your elements, text or drop shadows.

Once you have your name tag cropped, go to your layers pallet and right click on your phrase/name layer, then click Convert To Raster Layer, then go to Effects, click Plug-ins, then click Eye Candy 4 - then click Gradient Glow from the slide out menu.

(Remember, to apply a drop shadow, go to Effects, click 3D Effects then click Drop Shadow, apply settings below or chose your own :-)

Now in your layers pallet, right click on your main name layer, then click Convert To Raster Layer.
Now go to Effects, and click Plug-ins, then click Eye Candy 5 - Impact, then click Gradient Glow from the slide out menu.
