From Russia with love

This will be another great challenge at
The theme is AROUND THE WORLD. Is there something that needs to be explain? I don't think so LOL
The sponsor for this challenge is

The idea of my DT card was to make something folk. I used the sponsor's dolls to create Russian Matrioshkas. As a child I had some Matrioshka dolls, but there were not three, but maybe five or six of them.
Poland, from which I come from, is a Russia's neighbour, so it's easy to buy some things coming from our Eastern border. I wanted the dolls not to be different sizes only, but to make them also look 3D, that's why I used a 3D tape.
The serviette is also folk-inspired, I think this is the common element for many cultures. The flowers are made using different punches, and I also added a lot of bling, 'cos this is how the folk outfit rings my bell.
I remember I have been learning Russian in primary school for 4 years, and I still can read their letters. Lots of people abroad think we - Polish people - are Russian when they hear our language. It maybe sounds similar, but it isn't (this is exacly how I hear the Scandinavian languages - they're all the same for me) LOL
Anyway, all the people all around the world: we are all exceptional and we all need love, respect and a little of kindness. Take care!
