OCC Challenge - Strawberries, Chocolate & Pearls

From Our Creative Corner
Have you checked out the OCC challenge for this week? It's an mummm, yummy color challege reminding me of some of my favorite foods. It's an inspiration color challenge featuring the colors hot pink, light pink, chocolate brown and white which reminds me of some of my favorite foods, namely strawberries and chocolate!! even though my mouth was watering, I still struggled with this challenge I think I spent at least three evenings on it! Here is the result. I actually had chocolate brown pearls instead of the white ones, but I re-read the challenge guidelines just before I uploaded and yikes(!!) I realized I missed the color white. So I carefuly pried off the brown pearls and replaced them with the white ones - but I really liked the chocolate brown pearls a lot better!! Anyway, here is my response to Dana's challenge this week. Be sure to check out the challenge and see what the other DT members have come up with to inspire you this week.

Linda, LOL -- I love that you had to replace the pearls for white ones-- that is totally something I would do- after realizing I goofed on the colors!!!!!!! I got the colors wrong - but could not fix it or replace it at midnight when I uploaded and realized!!!!!!! Lovely vintage feel to your work -- so detailed and always interesting!
