Copy and paste element 61 as a new layer and re-size by  58%. Move to right side of tube behind fawn.
Duplicate, move to left side, make sure it's behind the boot-house and the grapes.
Add drop shadow to each.

Copy and paste paper 11 as a new layer and send to bottom.
Crop your tag.
Add mask and merge group. I used Mask25. I duplicated by layer and merged them together. I sharpened twice and duplicated again.
I added noise of 17%, gaussian checked. Merge all visible.

Add artist copyright and your license number.
Merge visible.

To animate:
Go to Selections, select all.
Go to Edit and copy merged. Paste as a new animation in Animation Shop.
Hold your Ctrl key down and repeatedly hit letter L on your keyboard for a total of 16 frames.
You can watch the count on the lower right hand side of your screen in AS.
Open SimoneAni496-MNG
Go to Edit, select all.
Go to Edit, copy.

Activate your tag.
Go to Edit, select all.
Go to Edit, make sure Propagate Paste is selected.
Go to Edit, Paste, paste into selected frames.

Position on your tag and click into place. I placed mine as the middle flower on my tag.
Ok now go back to SimoneAni496-MNG. Click to activate. Go to Animation> Mirror.
Go to Edit>Copy.
Now activate your tag again and then go to Edit, paste, paste into selected frames.
Now position (with your cursor/mouse) to the left of previous flower and closer to your tube.

Ok now go back to SimoneAni496-MNG. Click to activate. Go to Animation>Re-size and enter: 75%, smart size checked.
Go to Edit>Copy.
Now activate your tag again and then go to Edit, paste, paste into selected frames.
Now position (with your cursor/mouse) to far right of tag and slightly higher up on the branch.
See my tag for reference.

I also ended up using animation 471 which you'll find on my blog as well as animation 515

Play and save.
Don't forget to add your name.

To save:
Go to File, Save as, enter the name of your file and select the folder to save to.
Now click on Customize:
Under COLORS TAB:
Number of colors: 255 Colors
Create palette by: OPTIMIZED OCTREE
Reduce colors by: Error Diffusion
Under OPTIMIZATIONS TAB:
set a check mark beside the second, third and forth choices. UN-check the 1st and last.
Under PARTIAL TRANSPARENCY:
check Convert pixels less than 92
Yes, blend with this color: change to white #FFFFFF
Click OK. Click Next, next, next, next.
Play your animation.
At times your animation may or will come out terrible. Optimization in Animation Shop is not the greatest.
You can play around will your settings, especially under the Tab: Optimization. I change this setting at times from anywhere between 70 and 100.
Some people add a white background.  To add background, go to Animation: Animation Properties, select Opaque and change color to white.


Hope you enjoyed this tutorial,
Hugs Simone
