**Optional**

I wanted my Tube to look like she was popping out of the tag & here is how I did it.

Take your Selection Tool and make a Selection like so

 

Activate the Border layer ... Selections> Promote Selection to Layer ... Selections> Select None

In your Layer Palette move this layer above the Tube layer now you will notice the border covers this portion of the Tube

so it looks like the Tube is popping out of the Tag
