I wanted to place some flowers between her legs. So here is a little trick. I have copied the "girl" layer and erased almost everything except her front leg.

Place the pink flower under the "girl" layer. Separate the flower from its background using magic wand.

Now place a butterfly behind the girl so that it looks like girl's wings.You can add little butterflies if you want. Color of the butterfly can be changed through  color balance (ctrl+b).

I will add some shadow now. Use Burn tool to give shadow using midtone range and exposure 50%.
