Here is another view of my card:

The images I used came from Free Vintage Digital Stamps. I colored them with my Prismacolor pencils. I have use burlap twine and cogs from stash. I used Tim Holtz’s embossing folder, then with a stiff pint brush I brushed on TH’s distress inks. My 3 gold brads came from Lynx.

I can not decide which photo I like best so here is a different view:
