MY COMMENTS:
Over the years, I've tried praticing with mixing photography with graphics. This is still my favorite one to date. The color is good, I like the idea. I simply wanted to add beauty with the photo.

MY QUESTIONS FOR THE GROUP:
My only problem was...I couldn't get rid of the edges of the photo. I didn't want to see the borderlines of the picture so much. I tried to fade it out as much as I could without taking too much light away from her face. It's almost there...

It's very pretty, probably you'll get better response if you post it in photography.

I'll copy this to digital for more help with your problem.

You need to create a gradient mask over the photo, so that the edges of the photo will fade off into the rest of the image.

a tip to add to madster's advice. Think about how much background you need to start with in order to make that blend work - it's probably more than you think. I find that photos are cropped too tight, esp. above the subject, to get a nice blend out. You're lucky when the background is nondescript because you can easily clone or recreate an extra measure above the subject.
