I used...

 Tree - Position top left behind the chromed circle layer. Reduce opacity to 60%.

Archway 60%. Top left above Tree behind chromed circle. Duplicate, mirror copy to right. Merge down. Duplicate layer again and change blend mode of top copy to screen.

Water Pot - Bottom left above Grass.

Fly - 30% - Mirror. Top left. Above Archway.

Wheelburrel - 80%-  Mirror. Left centre of tag, above template layers. Behind Water Pot. Reduce opacity to 80.

Flower 4 - 30%. Bottom left above Water Pot. Duplicate mirror copy to bottom  right.

Leaves 30%. Bottom left above Water pot, behind Flower 4.

Geese - 65%. Bottom left above Flower 4 and tube layer.

Garden Boxes - 65%. Bottom right above Grass. Behind Flower 3/Tube. Use eraser tool to remove any part of Boxes that show beyond left side of Tube.

Flower 13 - 70%. Bottom right behind Garden Boxes.

Bird - 35%. Position on right. Above Garden Boxes.

Re open word art and position to your liking on tag. Change colour using Manual Color Correction and Apply same Hsb Noise as we did on Chrome layer. Shadow.

Mask Layer - C/paste paper 8. Move to bottom of layer palette. Load mask from disk - fit to layer.
In layer palette - Delete mask - Merge group.
Use Raster deform tool to position. I moved mine up slightly and to the right. I then duplicated and mirrored copy to left.

Merge all layers. Crop/re size to your liking. I usually sharpen at this point rather than each separate element as I go along. Adjust - Sharpness - Unsharp Mask 5.0 - 30 -5.
Add name and relevant artist copyright and tube licence info.
Save as Png.
