Place girl on a suitable Background

This is an indoors image I took (with flash) while the little girl was playing with her umbrella...

I have extracted the girl and also did some minor touch ups but I am short of ideas (and material) for a suitable background... I'll be grateful if you can use your skills and stock of B/Gs to make an attractive and suitable composite. Feel free to do what you think is best. Thank you...

I wasn't very happy with the background.  Extraction was achieved with Calculations>Green, Inverted Red, and Linear burn.

All the way to Hollywood for the remake of Singing in the Rain, they said I was to young, but at least they let me keep the umbrella ?, Ah well I can but dream. Letting my imagination run wild Sunshineboy.

Absolutely lovely Ron. I tried a similar b/g myself but yours is so much better, especially with the matching colors of the flowers. Thank you

VERY nice Ralph. I like the kind of romantic look to it. I am sure her mum will LOVE this but maybe the girl will vote for Patsy's Hollywood...  LOL Unless someone comes up with a Barbie theme as she is absolutely crazy about Barbie!...  Thank you

Wow!.. I haven't shown her anything yet Patsy but I'm sure she'll want this printed to show her friends at the nursery school. The only thing to make her change her mind might be a background related to Barbie!... Thank you so much

A masterpiece Gary!  When she grows up and watches 'Dancing in the rain', she'll have something to speak of...  Thank you

Re: Place girl on a suitable Background

Do you have the original image before you performed any work?  I believe I could get a much better extraction from the original, but perhaps not.  Your extraction has a lot of missing areas and is not very good around the hair, especially.  If not, I will try to see how well I can do with this one.

Sorry, but this appears to be a different image altogether.

Not Barbie, but how about Snow White's Castle.

Then again this could be her helping Barbie prune the flowers, with her new hair style.
