Easter ribbons and buttons

This colours for this card were chosen using this weeks Allsorts challenge - its a photo for inspiration and it has lots of yellow and pink.  Not really my kinda colours but its good to try something different now and again!  Mind you, with my lack of photography skills, it would hardly matter what the colours are to start with - they look nothing like the real thing by the time I get them on here - if anybody can give me some tips to improve it, they will be very gladly received - I've tried both of my cameras, with flash on and off, in different places in my craft room, downstairs in the sunroom, in daylight and with lights on at night and despite all of this, they still don't look right!

The papers are once again from my new Doodlebug pads and the image is LOTV.  The challenge on this weeks PFP is to use ribbons and buttons, so it can be entered there as well, as I used my Promarkers and Flexmarkers and the layout is Mojo Monday.  I've added some stickles to the wee cupcakes and the petals of the flower just to finish off.  I can't believe I won the Allsorts prize this week with my recipe card below! Just waiting on my voucher now to spend on the Little Darlings site!
