SCS Inspiration Challenge IC166 - Matryoshka Doll

SCS Inspiration Challenge (IC) 166

There so many great inspiration pieces from the IC166 challenge that I decided to add this card. I had this in my stash for awhile when I thought of making my mom a thank you card that looked like a Matryoshka doll. She brought one back for me from Russia when she and my dad went on a cruise last year. There was also a template available for a Matryoshka doll gift card holder in the Papercrafts Magazine Nov-Dec issue (please note that I just created a regular card and not a gift card holder). I just never uploaded this card because I just wasn't happy with it. But when I was browsing through the Inspiration Challenge for 2.7.09...I saw this beautiful inspiration:
