Here's your design with finishing effects, along with a couple of closeups for detail. A silver leaf texture has been added to the banners, along with bevels and shading to the banner borders and black letters. We've tried changing the type on the maltese to silver, as it harmonizes well with the red, and it unifies the overall maltese element. The maltese has a stone texture, and the borders have an embossed, metal look. The horseman in the center is a shiny brushed silver, and holds well as the focal point of the overall design. The natural flames give a great splash of color and energy.
