First, you make the dark blue background layer.  Then copy that layer and select all, Transform that layer to be the size you want for the center blue color.  Fill that layer with the proper color then de-select it.

Make Copy that into another layer and name it gradient.  Adjust its size slightly larger and make a layer effect for drop shadow as shown.

You can use the rectangle shape tool with the stroke set to a gradient fill.
