 To animate open your animation files in AS and count the frames. The file i used had 15 frames so i merge the tag Copy to AS 15 times.
 The color on the animation was a little off so i used AS to recolor my animation i used.
How to achieve this in AS Select all in AS and click the Animation menu up top in the drop menu there is Replace color click that and a window will open up. Click the color block on top to use the dropper to select your " old color" then select your new color from your tag you just pasted to AS.
 Repeat this function until you are satisfied with the color change.
Then reduce the size of your animation by 75% using the same menu but this time chose Resize animation on the menu and change the number to 75% .
 Then copy and paste into existing frames
 Repeat with the sparkle animation minus the sizing and recoloring
 Save as a GIF
 you are all done
