Daring Cardmakers challenge - Russian

I was a bit stumped by this one but I copied Sue and I googled Russian and looked at the images. The first thing that sprung to mind was the shape of the buildings in Moscow so I used my baubles cut from DCWV paper. I then thought what Russia meant to me "Battleship Potemkin" The 5 year plans, Stalin, Lenin, Communism and as I grew up the cold war and Gorbachov (who I saw at Harrods when I worked there). The cold war is now over and there is PEACE so I used this as my sentiment. I hope it fits this weeks dare and this week it was a real brain teaser.
So here is my card for the Daring Cardmakers challenge.
