Tube of choice. Art by Barbara Jensen. Find the tube: here
Cluster frame by me: here
PSP shape  here

*Preset shape and texture: I received it from a yahoo group several years ago
**If you know who made the preset shape let me know to give credit.

Open the cluster frame. Keep the layer background and frame of choice. 
Delete the rest. Resize and expand the canvas if it's necessary.

Open the pattern. Place it in the background in the materials layer.

Make a gradient with two  colors from your tube:
My choice:

Foreground: #99b6ab
Background: #2b3e31

Style: Linear
Angle: 135
Repeats: 0
Invert: unchecked

Activate the background layer. Selections - All - Float - Defloat.
Delete the layer and add a new one.

Flood fill with the gradient.

Effects - Texture Effects - Texture:

Activate the preset shape tool. Select a shape of your choice:

Ensure the foreground is null and the pattern is in the background. 

Create the shape to cover the inside of the frame:

Convert to raster layer. Remove any excess.
Selections - All - Float - Defloat.  Selections - Modify - Expand by: 2 pixels.
Add a new layer, flood fill with a dark color. I used the one from the gradient: #2b3e31
Add drop shadow:
V: -1 H: 3
O: 40 B: 6

Move the layer below the shape.

Open the tube, c/p in the canvas. Resize if needed and place it in the right side.
