Next add the Company Address - "89 Adrienne Lane, Alyssatown, Fl 34332, Tel. 555.111.2323, Fax 555.111.4434". Use the Font Family "Segoe Print" which is a free Font that was downloaded at FontFreak.

Step 12: Insert Images

Here I downloaded the Images of 3 Flowers from Clker, which is a site where you can download Royalty Free Clipart.

Check out Public-Domain-Image, and OpenClipArt as well.

Now we will make a Duplicate of the Pink Flower. To do this, hold down the Alt Key while the Flower is selected and drag to make another copy.

Next place the Red Flower. Scale it to "20%". Add the Drop Shadow with the same settings as the Pink Flower.

The Images when put together should look like this:
