Thanks for all the positive comments Guys and Gals! I guess your right Sharon, this was a "little more than a little" :- ) I certainly don't mind sharing my secrets Kelly but it may be a little long winded to respond here. To get you started though, all the shapes on this one are available in the "custom shapes" menu. You can use those and convert the shape paths to selections and cut or copy or color fill for your individual layers. (The background tile was just a solid color fill layer with styles applied). Then it's a matter of using layer styles and blend modes for the effects. Maybe you can play with that for awhile but feel free to email me for any specific questions. Good luck! #155768
