Lets Begin:

Open a new blank canvas of 650x225.
Open paper 5 and copy and paste as a new layer.
Crop your tag and this will clear any excess paper.
Layers new raster layer.
Flood fill with a darker blue color. I used #43576e.
Apply your mask.
Delete the mask layer and merge the group.
Adjust add/remove noise. Add noise at 60% uniform and monochrome checked.
Add a drop shadow of 1 -1 100 2.00 with the same color of blue.
Lower the opacity of this layer to 60.
Open your tube and copy and paste as a new layer.
Move over to the far right hand side.
Apply the Xero Porcelain filter using the default settings 2x.
Add a drop shadow.
Open element 5 and re-size by 60%.
Copy and paste as a new layer and move under the tube.
Place on the left side of the tube so it is peeking out behind the tube.
Duplicate and re-size this duplicate by 60%.
Move this copy to the far left side of the tag area.
Open element 38 and re-size by 50%.
Copy and paste as a new layer and place along the bottom side of the tag.
Duplicate a few times and place randomly along the bottom.
Open element 37 and repeat the above steps.
Add a drop shadow to each flower.
Layers new raster layer at the top.
Flood fill with the same blue you used for your mask.
Selections select all and then selections modify and contract by 5.
Hit delete. This will clear the middle and leave a border.
Selections select none.
Add noise to the border and a drop shadow.
Add your name and copyright information.
Lets get ready to animate:
Merge together all of your layers except the background paper and the mask layer.
Then merge the background paper and the mask layer together.
You should have 2 layers at this point.
Make your bottom layer active and edit copy and go to animation shop and right click and paste as a new animation.
Open your animated snow and you will see that there are 40 frames in this animation.
Duplicate the frames in your tag to the same amount.
Select all frames on both your tag and your animation.
Drag frame 1 of the animation onto frame 1 of your tag.
Place and let go once you are happy.
You can view your animation to be sure its correct. If not undo and redo until you are happy with it.
Back to psp and edit copy the top layer.
Back to animation shop and right click and paste as a new animation.
Duplicate the frames and drag frame 1 onto frame 1 again and be sure to not let go until you have it exactly in place. You may have to undo a few times to get it right.
View your animated tag. If you are happy then save.
Lets create the avatar:
Open a new blank canvas of 150x150
