Open your tube, copy and paste as a new layer, arrange in the rectangle, take your eraser tool and erase the bits that hang over, deselect add drop shadow to the tube and glitter rectangle, delete the black rectangle.
Open piano keys, resize by 55%, arrange them so that the bigger end is just covering the bottom left side of the rectangle, erase the little bit at the right side that hangs over the circle.
Open the tag cluster, resize by 36%, copy and paste as a new layer, arrange over the left side of piano keys.
