Porcelain My Cup of Cocoa!

I made this card using the 6x6 Basic Grey pack of Porcelain paper. I have to say that I LOVE this paper so much! I used the House Mouse stamp Morning Kick Start and the HM sentiment Cup Of Cocoa. I also used a few of the wonderful metal embellishments from a 350 pack from my online store. I love the little case these come in (: I used Pearl paint to distress my edges in a shabby chic way. If you have never used Pearl paint or liquid pearls you really are missing something fun. I carry all of these products in my store, because I use them and have been using them for some time. Go Shopping! 
I have a question for all you professional photographers (: I made a light box and it looks really professional. The problem is the person using it is not, LOL! My images are turning out oddly colored which is not what I was going for in the first place. I read online to use natural light bulbs. I bought them last night and I did find some improvement, but it is still not perfect. I had to alter the tints of the photo above to look a little normal. I have a Panasonic DMC-TZ1 camera. If anyone has any tips that can help me make this light box work, I would be so appreciative! Hope everyone is having a great weekend. I am still home with kids with the flu ): I am going to play with flower soft sometime this weekend! 
Let me know what you think!!!!
