Magnolia Fall Card

Hello All,
  It looks like fall is in the air here.  It has gotten cooler these last couple of days.  Plus the rain  is supposed to last into the weekend.  I like the rain but I don't like driving in it.  I especially love a really good thunderstorm.  It just makes you want to cuddle up with a good book and read all day.
  Well, I created another Magnolia card.  The embellishments are not really what I wanted but it is what I had on hand.  I don't think you can really go wrong if Prima Flowers are involved.  I do love Prima and all the wonderful choices they have out there for flowers.  It doesn't really look like it in the photo, but the center and the edges of the flower are brown.  I didn't have fall flowers in my stash so I made do.  That seems to be my mantra for this card...make do with what I have.  I so wanted to use some burlap and some cheese cloth for this card, but maybe next time.  I have a couple of witch magnolia's on their way from Magnolia-Licious Store and from Simon Says Stamp.  
  I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
  Well, I am currently reading "The Language of Flowers" by Vanessa Diffenbaugh for the Color Me Creative group called "Bookends".  I am having trouble getting into it though.  It may just be me because I have been reading comments from the other group members and they are loving it.  Maybe I just need to read some more.
  Well, I am also excited for the Online Card Class called Inspiration Showcase to start.  It begins on the 12th of Sept. and runs until the 23rd.  It is all about creativity and I can't wait.  I took part in their last Online Card Class and it was excellent.  I need to learn where to find inspiration and be more creative.  I guess from reading all the comments on the web page, a lot of us struggle with this  same thing.  
  Well, guess that is it for today.  I need to be making another card.  I guess I'll see what I've got on hand and see if I can be a little bit more creative before I have to head to work.
