Russian Dolls

I have seen these nesting dolls made into beautiful cards in a papercraft magazine a while ago and had the idea in the back of my mind to make one when I got the chance.  CC328 challenge was a great colour challenge that I thought might work with these dolls.  Titled Cherry Night Cakes (Cherry Cobbler, Night of Navy & Crumb Cake) it challenges you to use those colours only on a card.  I did not choose the dessert option of adding something from my kitchen as I totally forgot. 
Here are my "girls"

They open up the top or side and can open up to a family of nesting dolls if you like.  These ladies have both a front and back, but no babies inside.  The lady on the left was made using some paper I had in my stash and is Non-SU.  The doll on the right is made with the "Artistic Etching" circle stamp on Whisper White.
