The tube I used Cat is by Alicia Mujica, you can get this tube for free from Alicia's blog here

Open a new transparent canvas 700x700, we will resize later
Floodfill with a color from your tube
Apply xero fritillary changing the top & bottom #'s to 12

Paste your tube as a new layer
Resize to 20%
Duplicate 9 times for 10 layers
From the top rename these layers to animation 1, 2, 3, etc
Activate animation 1
Apply muara meister copies changing the top 3 #'s to 60 (this will depend on the size of your tube, play around with it), set Phase at 100
Preset menu set to Spiral, shift mode Circle

Activate animation 2
Apply copies decreasing the phase by 10 to 90

change phase to 80 on animation 3

Decrease phase by 10 on each layer

On the last layer the phase # should be 10

Hide all these layers for now

Paste your tube as a new layer again
Resize as needed

Activate your preset shapes tool
Draw out a star
Add an inner bevel & drop shadow
Resize to 75%
