Activate hearts layer. Use magic wand to select hearts. Choose FM_Sweet Valentine 22 and copy and paste as new layer. Selections/Modify/Smooth with these settings: Smoothing amount-8 Corner scale-7. Selections/Invert and hit delete. Delect and apply dropshadow of choice.

Activate heart1 layer. Use magic wand to select it. Choose 2 colors for your gradient. I chose white and a light pink color. Floodfill heart with gradient. With heart still selected copy and paste your tube. Postion it where you like then Invert and delete.

Invert selection again. Duplicate tube layer. On bottom tube layer gaussian blur at 7. Change layer properties to softlight. On top layer change layer properties to luminance (L)

Activate heart 2 layer and repeat the same steps as above for the heart1 layer.

Activate Grayrectangle and select with magic wand. Floodfill with color or gradient of your choice. Apply same Gradient Glow as before.

Activate the Valentine wordart and change the color to whatever you like. You can add dropshadow or gradient glow, whatever you like.
