We’re going to put a tube into the left frame first but I thought it was neat to have part of the tube in the large heart also. Use your Magic Wand and click inside the left frame. Selections/Modify/Expand by 4. Copy and paste your tube below the frame. Be sure to get it into the exact position you like. Change the property to Overlay. Now highlight the large heart.

Merge visible both of your candles. I brought mine to the top - easier for me when it comes time to animate. Duplicate twice for a total of 3 layers. Rename Candle 1, 2, and 3.

Highlight Candle 1. Use your Freehand Selection Tool and make a small tear drop shape above each of the candle wicks. Tip: Let the tear drop outline overlap at least the top quarter of the wick otherwise the flame will be floating in thin air over it…hehehe
