  2. Open a texture file for the background and scale it appropriately.
  3. Reduce the opacity of the texture to about 25%.
  4. Use the flower design assets to create a floral arrangement.
  5. Bring a golden texture into Photoshop and create a mask using a flattened version your floral arrangement.
  6. Add a drop shadow to your masked floral arrangement. Set the blend mode to multiple and the opacity to about 70%.
  7. Write out your text.
  8. Duplicate the golden texture you used for the floral arrangement mask and replace the mask with one created using your text.
  9. If desired darken the golden texture you used for your text.
