I made a few small adjustments to the flower in ACR and then isolated it in PS. Then I placed a light red layer under the flower and a dark red layer under that layer. With the light red layer selected and the gradient tool set on fade to background I drew a line from each corner toward the flower. I then placed a darker red layer under the other red layers. I then selected the middle red layer and drew shorter lines from each corner to the flower.
