Flourishes Timeless Tuesday #120

This week is my last as the May Guest Designer with the Flourishes Timeless Tuesday team. It has been so much fun and super to work with this awesome team. Thanks so much for the opportunity.
This week Cindy Haffner is hostess and asked that we use the colors cranberry, caramel, dark grey and/or brown.

I wanted to make a lattice card and it was my first attempt. No frame-long story. LOL
The stamp sets I used are Flourishes Friendly Reminders and Home Tweet Home. I'm using the Spellbinders Nested Pennants die cut for my sentiment piece.

This was also my first attempt at a paper rolled rose. I had earlier made a ribbon one and really liked it so I thought I would try paper.  I sprayed my rose with Smooch Spritz and added just a few Dazzling Diamonds.
I paper pieced the bow on the  mailbox.
