Raspberry Suite color challenge

Hi again! When I saw Dawn's latest color challenge yesterday, I thought I would give it a try. My colors are Soft Sky, Ruby Red, Very Vanilla, Kraft and Chocolate Chip. The swirl stamp I used is part of a tree stamp from Trendy Trees. I just used the top of the tree part and punched it out. Can you picture sea shells on a beach by the colors and the swirl circles? I hope this card is not too "minimalistic" :)

Also, I would add an update for you who asked about the earthquake in Padang, Indonesia. Please pray for the people who lost their homes and loved ones. It is bad. Last night, there was another unrelated earthquake nearby Jambi. I heard some sad stories, they found one mother with her 5 month old baby in her arms. Both dead. A mother was waiting outside her 14 year old daughter's school. Hoping she might survive. And on and on. My heart goes out to them. The number of victims are not tallied up yet as evacuation is still ongoing, but it is already close to 900 so far.

Thank you for praying. And I hope you like the card.

Recipe: (all by SU!)
Cardstock: Very Vanilla, Kraft, Chocolate Chip, Ruby Red, Soft Sky
Ink: Chocolate Chip, Whisper White, Ruby Red
Stamp set: Trendy Trees
Everything else: Corduroy button, Word Window punch, Stampin' Dimensionals

I absolutely love this card! Thanks for sharing - the idea behind would be great for a male birthday card as well I think.
