Create a new layer and name it Specials. Draw a vertical rectangle with rounded corners on the Specials layer. Make the rectangle 199 pixels wide and 305 pixels tall, and the rectangle roundness 16. Move the rectangle to the right of the page. Make the fill color of the rectangle a light gray or choose color 3 from the basic_colors.png file.
