Another Crocodile Petite Purse

I was cleaning out the house and found a bunch of shopping magazines and I was perusing before I recycled the magazine and this page from Loehmann's caught my eye. Cool texture and I liked how the purse was edged with another layer of crocodaile and stitching.  I thought I could do that!  and this is my version.
Diecut 2 Petite purses from the crumbcake CS.  Ran one of them through the Cuttlebug EF then sponged it using mustard, crumbcake and soft suede to add some texture then took the second purse and cut the edges about 1/4 inch wide as shown.  I sponged that too. (When I tried to use the crocodile folder on that it did not have enough contrast and without the embossing, it looked better I thought). Added the stitching with the pen part of the chocolate ship stampin write marker.  Added the brad  (retired SU) and the handls with the mini brad and I thought pretty darn close, eh?

I am having such a ball with this die, can you tell?  Enjoy my madness!  Lynda

The embossing folder I used is a Cuttlebug one I had for a long time I was calling it small croc but I think this may be it- http://www.provocraft.com/products/detail.php?cl=cuttlebug&scl=embossing&cat=&item=37-1151
