BBTB2 Challenge

This card is for my 100 yr old grandmother, she fell and broke her arm and fractured her hip last week. She's such a fighter, she has already been up and walking around. She's amazing!!

This weeks challenge was to use the 6 petal flower from Bloom.
 I spritzed them w/ water and crumpled them up. Then I opened them up and used my heat gun to dry them. This also makes them stiffen a bit. I sprayed them w/ Red Velvet Glimmer Mist. I drew some black lines on the center piece and glued some black seed beads in the center of the flower. I also used Sophie and Lyrical Letters, paper is Recollections, DCWV and Papertrey Ink, Lime Stickles,Swiss Dots embossing folder and a pearl strand.
I hope this will cheer her up a bit!!

Hope your day is great!!
