background is #000000 take a soft brush and change the size to 265 px,
at the bottom of your tool bar u have two
boxes with
colors in it. click on the top box
and change it to any

the color #E9829C. Place it in the
middle and make
your circle. 

Step 2:

Now it's time to resize the gradient circle you just
made. press the shortcut keys Ctrl+T. Take your cursor and move transform it and
your soft brush eraser and erase around the gradient
circle to get more of a softer look. It should look a little
something like this:

Step 3:

Let's start designing! Click on the custom shape tool and load the Dezignus set of shapes. use the same color that you used for the gradient
circle on step 1 #E9829C. After you have
placed it on your
background, lower the Opacity to 11%

soft brush eraser and erase around it.
Might look a little
something like this:

make it stand out. Use the Lady Victorie Stars brush pick the one you want
the color #FFFFFF now it should look like this:
