Paste the limo down at the bottom of the city scape.

Paste the New Years ball on the left, below the city scape., resize to 90%, erase the base part showing at the bottom.

Paste Fireworks 01, duplicate twice and move where you like. I moved the duplicated ones below the mask layer on each side.

Resize your tube to 65%, place in the center.
Resize the Confetti Trumpet to 40%, mirror, place at the bottom by your tube,
duplicate, mirror.

Paste the Count down coil at the bottom, apply a fat black gradient glow, erasing the coil part completely.
Flip the Snow Swirl, then paste at the bottom above the tubes on the mask, duplicate, mirror and adjust below the car.

Add any other elements you would like, make it your own.

Crop your tag to be sure no stray shadows are on the edges of your tag.
Once happy with it all, close off any backgrounds, merge visible.
