I made this purse to put some of my cards from my stash to give to one of my son teacher. I decided to try the faux alligator instead of the pattern papers. The purse looks o.k. I think if I were to use either black or chocolate chip it would look much better. The thing is I've thought of using those two color but I am running low on both card stock colors. I am debating whether to order those card stocks from Stampin' Up! now or to wait until July. If I order the card stocks now I'll be saving several dollars. If I wait until July, I will be spending extra dollars since the price of the card stocks are going up for the new catalog. I have lots of Brilliant blue card stocks. I ordered them for wedding invitations last year but never got to use them. Hopefully one day it will be used up.
I cut off 1/4" on each side of the purse. I like this one better. The purse is still very big but it has a better shape.
