Unzip the materials into a working folder you have created on your desktop named Send Me Roses. Place the Pattern Goldbeads in to your PSP/Patterns folder. Export the Sparkle.PspTube into the PSP/Picture Tubes folder. Please duplicate and close original tubes using the copies for your work so you will not lose the originals. I have used the plugins Neology/Transparent Pizza, AP 01 [Innovations]/Mirror-Reflections and Filters Unlimited 2.0/Buttons & Frames/3D Glass Frame 1 in this tutorial. It is assumed you have a working knowledge of PSP to follow these directions. I have used PSP2019 for this tutorial but other versions may be used.

Thanks go to K@rine,  Cibi and Silvie for the lovely tubes used.
