We're going to use the Gaussian Blur to make the shadow more realistic. Go to Filter > Blur > Gaussian Blur and use a Radius of 3.5px.
Now your image should be similar to this one:
Let's change the hair of the girl a little bit. Select the Smudge Tool and start clicking and dragging her hair around (see image below for reference):
Yours probably won't look exactly the same, but don't worry about that. In my image her hair looks like this:
Your image should now be similar to this one:
Before moving on to the next step, group the girl and its shadow in a new group (Ctrl/Command+G) and name it Right Girl.
Step 11: Add the balloons
Let's add the balloons to our scene. Open the three balloons and use the Quick Selection Tool (W) to select them. It's the same process for the three of them, and after that you can copy and paste them into our project.
Resize the balloons using the Free Transform Tool (Ctrl/Command+T) and holding Shift while click and drag the corners, like usual. Place them above the right girl like shown in the image below:
Now we're going to rotate the second and third balloon a little bit. Use the Free Transform Tool (Ctrl/Command+T) again and change the Rotate values like shown in the images below:
Your balloons should look like this now:
To finish this step group the three balloons in a new group called Balloons (really original huh).
Step 12: Add the ribbons holding the balloons
Let's start this step by creating a new group called Ribbons and placing it between the Right Girl group and the Picture group. Leave the ribbons stock open because we'll use it again later.
To create a new group just click the 'Create a new group' button.
Now open the ribbons stock and use the Quick Selection Tool to select the third one (that's the only one we're going to use).
Paste it into our scene and resize it using the Free Transform Tool(Ctrl/Command+T). Place it in the hands of our girl in the right.
Now go into the Free Transform mode again, right click the ribbon and select Warp.
Our goal is to make the ribbon bend so it looks like the girl is actually holding the balloon. See the image below for the steps:
