Step 4

Again go to the Layer Panel and select that green oval which we had drawn in Step 2. Now fill the stroke with #3c2415 and increase the stroke size to 4 pt. I have added the stroke at this stage because I didn’t want the stroke color to blend with other colors.

I have also drawn an oval shape larger than the golden stroke and filled the stroke with the color code #3c2415.

Now make few small oval shapes filled with white color and apply Gaussian Blur to them. (See the below image.)
