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.

Credits to:
- "bazzabent stock" on deviantart for a great stock so kindly given to us. I used two images: porcelain pumpkin and dwarf. Visit account at: http://bazzabent-stock.deviantart.com/.
- "shoofly-stock" also on deviantart for a stock that I am absolutely in love with. I used some really great butterflies PNG files. Visit account at: http://shoofly-stock.deviantart.com/.
- "sunira" on deviantart for the galaxies brush that helped me a lot to get just the right feeling I was looking for. At: http://sunira.deviantart.com/.
- "rlBrushes" on deviantart for a wonderful pixie dust brush. Account at: http://rl-brushes.deviantart.com/.

Rest of images are from "stockxchng" as usual and also from obsidiandawn and blendfu.com. Thanks to all these sites for a wonderful job offered to all of us!

A couple of the butterflies shouldn't be casting shadows on the air, otherwise not bad...
Edit: Shadows corrected, good luck.
