Play around in it and find one you like :O)

Use your Magic Wand and click inside the frames. Selections/Modify/Expand by 6.
New Raster layer below the frame layer and flood fill with a gradient made with colors from your tube.

Copy and paste your tube above the frame - positioning it off to the right. When you have it exactly where you want it, duplicate. Move the duplicated layer just below the frame in your layers pallet.
