Open Paper 4 & your mask. Minimize your mask. Copy your paper & paste as a new layer onto your blank canvas. Apply your mask, merge group.

Open Frame 3. Resize by 78%. Copy & paste as a new layer. With your magic wand tool, click inside your frame. Selections, modify, expand by 3.

Open 5. Copy & paste as a new layer. Selections, invert and press delete. Deselect and move this layer below the frame layer.

Now lets add your elements:

Cloud – place to the top left; duplicate and place to the top right. Merge both copies together. Move this layer just above your mask layer.
