Magnolia-licious Colour Challenge #9

Hi everyone! It's been a few weeks since my last post as I'm taking it easy for the summer to spend time with my family.  But I couldn't miss today's fabulous Magnolia-licious Colour Challenge and this time it's RED, WHITE and BLUE.
My card features the sweet Tilda with Many Hearts.  She's currently out of stock at the Magnolia-licious online store but is available as a mini.
I was inspired by my uber talented friend Zoe's colouring HERE.  I kept the card fairly simple with no DP but couldn't resist adding the pretty rhinestone and red pearl swirls I found at Michaels.  I've been promising myself to use my CB embossing folders more so get ready to see more embossing in the near future.  Image was coloured with Copics but I didn't get a chance to jot down the colours.

I'm entering the following challenges:
Pop by to see the rest of the DT's beautiful creations and play along with us for a chance to win a $25 gift certificate from Diana at Magnolia-licious.

Have a fantastic week,
Maria
