From what you said, the card in her hand is no good anymore.

Thus, Permission to Accept.

But, here is the more important question ... which you didn't ask ... "does she need to do anything special' due to the fact that her greencard was denied?

Yes, she should talk to an attorney and you should NOT file any papers for her until after you've talked to an attorney about the reason(s) for the denial.
