We are going to work from bottom to top.
Highlight rectangle : select all/float/defloat add new layer, open paper 1 c/p into selection/deselect, delete template layer. add a fat white gradient glow but make glow width 3.00 and on color make a 3rd tab and move it all the way to the right and make that black.

Highlight dotted lines : add new layer floodfill with black, move back to dotted lines layer select all/float/defloat/invert now move back to your black floodfilled layer hit delete/deselect, delete template layer.

Leaves 1 : 40% and tuck behind the flower cluster
Leaves 2 : 50% move above the purple rectangle duplicate/mirror and move next to the original layer.
