Add drop shadow to the rectangles.

Copy and paste your tube place part of it in the right square-selections-invert-hit delete. Copy and paste your tube again place part of it in the left square-hit delete-selections-select none. I added xero-porcelain, twice to each tube layer with the settings below. 

Copy and paste your tube place to the right side of the template. I added xero-porcelain with the setting above twice, to kind of make the tube match the elements.
