Promote selection to layer and select none. Now go back to selections menu and re float the promoted selection. C/paste paper 2. De float - Invert - Delete. Apply same bevel as used previously and delete promoted selection layer.

Now to fill the inside of frame. Click in centre of frame with magic wand to float. Selections - Modify - expand by 4. C/paste paper 8. Invert and hit delete. Select none and move fill layer below frame. Add a drop shadow to both frames.

C/paste your tube and position above the frame. Apply Xero - Radiance to your liking and drop shadow.

C/paste Element Palm tree 1. Mirror and position above right side of frame behind tube. Use eraser tool to remove lower half of trunk that exceeds below bottom of frame. D/shadow.
