I was a tomboy growing up, believe it or not. Pink and purple? BAH HUMBUG, said the tomboy me of yesteryear! But today? I am a lover of all colours, guys. Plus, who could resist these hues of deep purple, velvety red rose, fuchsia and radiant orchid? Yeah, that's right - "radiant orchid", Pantone's colour of the year 2014. The name sounds like a 1990s old lady perfume-scented bathroom. But those rascals at Pantone managed to burrow a microchip colour hole into my brain and my rosette buttercream cupcakes turned out their colour. And, ok, it's a beautiful colour indeed.
I photographed this ultra simple, bursting with girly romance DIY for Poppytalk - powerblast on over there now for the whole flower topped rosette DIY spread!
