Set the line width to 5.

Close off your background color.
Starting in the center of your blank image,
draw an ellipse out not to large, you can adjust it
by pulling on the nodes you see and get it how you want it to look.

Click on this ellipse with your selection tool, and
flood fill it with a nice gold pattern.

Give this a nice inner bevel


Click on the inside of the frame, and selection modify

Copy and paste your graphic into the selection.

Pick a light color from your graphic and make that your foreground,
A dark color for your background.
Add a new layer and flood fill it with your light color.
Arrange and move down.

of some of the extra background.
