Curtain Call & Deconstructed Sketch

This is a "twofer" card...two challenges in one card!  The Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge has a yummy photo which inspired me by the colors and the dimensional flowers.  The layout is based on a sketch by Amber Hight for the Deconstructed Sketch challenge.  I needed a birthday card for a "young" lady who turned 99 last week!  I'm running late with my best wishes, but guess it's better late than never.  We have picked her up for years and taken her along to church and I'm so amazed at how spry she still is for her age!  She uses a rolling walker and she brings to mind the old Beach Boys' song lyric "go granny, go granny, go granny go" when she comes trucking down her sidewalk!
She's VERY hard of hearing and can't hear much of the service, but she enjoys all the hugs she gets each week!

Back to my card...I love the two and three step stamping going on with Papertrey Ink's Delightful Dahlia set along with their recently released companion set - Delightful Dahlia Additions. I tucked in some loops of jute twine and added some rhinestones, Diamond Stickles and ribbon and I'm good to go!

PAPER: Fabrications-Canvas by Teresa Collins, Vintage Cream by PTI.
ACCESSORIES: Kiwi Kiss satin ribbon by SU, Lush rhinestones by MME.
