Wife's new leather wallet

This is something i have been working on over the last few weeks. It should be finished in the next few days. I'm about half way done with the leather lacing that goes around the edge. Then i will post the finished wallet with the insides. It has been a learning experience, this being my first big project. I bought this kit and noticed once i was ready to glue the insides in that some of the holes didn't line up and it didn't have a place for credit cards, so it was back to the store where i found a roper wallet insert that i could add in with a little modification. The color was my wife's choice after a few tests on scrape, it looks better in person the sheen makes it hard to get a good pic, i was told that dark brown in a in color right now. I used a block on the flowers and vines so that they didn't take all the color giving me a nice contrast and a almost golden color for them as you can see in the last two pics.
