I cut pieces from the porcelain pumpkin image, added them onto the stone ball. Colored and added shadows to every element.
Added dwarf, added shadows for him, added backround and grass, and colored using a couple of adjustment layers.
Added butterflies, galaxies and light beams brushes.
Added gradients to obtain warm color and light.

Mainly, I've used the stone ball to imagine a new earth. The leaves of the trees from the source image are placed on the earth to show that there is the only planet in the whole Universe where is life. SF?...neahhh :P Enjoy!
