You will need:
Font of your choice - I used one called Kozmetica Script
Tube of your choice - I will be using the artwork of  Melissa Dawn
License and Tubes available at Creative Design Outlet
You can find this tube HERE and I used graphics that came with the tube.
 
Filters:
DSB Flux/ Bright Noise
Eye Candy 4000
Fun House/Gyro
Graphics Plus/Cross Shadow
MuRa's Meister/Copies
 
 
Ok let's begin

Change your Foreground and your Background to two colors from your Tube
Change your Foreground to Gradient ... with the following settings

 
 
Open a New Image 600x250 ...
I used the flowers from the tube and pasted them as new image. 
Duplicate and close one off to use later.

Effects > MuRa's Meister > Copies >  Wallpaper Rotate > Increase amount till the
background is covered – since I only used the flowers – I increased to 40.
 
Adjust> Blur> Motion Blur with the settings at 45 Angle at 100%
Then Image> Flip and Image > Mirror – redo the Motion Blur
Continue to do this Motion Blur > Flip > Mirror for about 6 times.
 
Duplicate – go to the top layer
Effects > Distortion Effects > Spiky Halo ... with the following settings



Mirror > Apply the Spiky Halo Effect again
Change the Blend Mode of this layer to Light or one that works for you.
Adjust > Sharpness > Unsharp Mask at these settings



Merge Visible > Duplicate 

Effects> Fun House > Gyro – at these settings



Change the Blend Mode of this layer to Light or one that works for you.
Merge down – you should have your background and flowers or accent piece at this point
 
Now have your gradient in your background section > the foreground is Transparent
Open your Rectangular Tool > Draw a Ribbon – horizontal across your tag.
While still in VECTOR Layer > Objects > Align > Center of Canvas > Raster Layer
Effects > Graphics Plus >  Cross Shadow at Default settings
Selections > Select All > Float
Selections > Select All > Defloat >
Selections > Modify > Select Selection Borders at the following settings



New Layer > Fill with an accent color – Rename Border
 
Duplicate this layer twice (for a total of 3) ...
Effects> DSB Flux> Bright Noise ... with the setting of 38
 
Activate the Copy of Border layer ... Edit> Repeat Bright Noise ... click on the Mix button once then OK
Activate the Copy (2) of Border layer ... Edit> Repeat Bright Noise ... click on the Mix button once then OK
Selections> Select None ... Hide the 2 Top Border Layers for now
 
If you are using an accent piece, like a flower – etc
and wish to have the same animation as my display – continue on
But if not – skip this section that is in Red.
Make two more copies of the flowers or your accent piece, and name them Accents.
For a total of three layers of Accents
Accent Layer > Effects > Eye Candy 4000 > HSB Noise at the following settings



Activate the Copy of Accent  layer ... Edit> Repeat HSB Noise ... click on the Random Seed
button once then OK
Activate the Copy (2) of Accent layer ... Edit> Repeat HSB Noise ... click on the Random Seed
button once then OK
Hide the 2 Top Accent Layers for now

 
With the Top layer active
Paste your Tube as a New Layer, position where you like – resize if necessary
Apply a suitable Drop Shadow
 
New Layer > fill with the same color as the Border layer...
Select All > Select > Contract by 2 > Drop Shadow – 0, 0, 100, 10 Black
