You must purchase a license to use their tubes and can do so HERE

~*~*~ Let's Get Started~*~*~

Start a new canvas

Flood fill with white.

Open as66
Add to your canvas
Resize down by 50%
Add a drop shadow

Open papaer01
Resize to 600px by 600px
Add to your canvas just below the frame
Use your magic wand to select inside the frame
Select → Modify → Expand, by 5px
Invert the selection
On the paper layer press delete
Select a purple from the highlight's in the hair of the tube
Add a new layer and on this new layer
Using Gradient fill, foreground to Transparent, Linear gradient

Add your tube to the canvas under the bottom tube from above a couple of times
I flipped one horizontally as well
Erase any of them that are outside the frame

I used the following from the bottom layer up with a drop shadow unless stated:

as77 (no drop shadow)
