All things Russian

Rein's wonderful dare this week over at Daring Cardmakers...

It's Rein here this week and as our Russian girl Irina is here staying with us again my dare is put a matryoshka or another typical Russian element like dress, architecture, or... ..... on your card.

I was very tempted to go with a Russian style doll but thought that these may be in abundance this week so went instead with the staple drink of all Russians*.... Vodka!
*Possibly not true!

I used an advert for Vodka found on the interweb, Bazzill card, McCormick font, Star punches, October Afternoon and Cosmo Cricket paper, Vintage buttons and lots of inking.

Wow - Jo, I love this - very Soviet-artsy look - and the colours are great.

Well done - it's not the easiest of challenges!
