Click left side of the anchor.

Click elliptical marquee tool.
Then make a little circle on the empty space that we just created.
Then fill the circle with the same color that you used before.
Click Eraser Tool and adjust the size to 101 pixels.
Click on the top of the rectangle. Then press delete key.
Go to layer 1 and right click and select blending options.
