Around the World Bridal Shower

My Auntie is getting married in a few weeks and my mom and family are planning her an "Around the World" Bridal Shower. I was given Russia...
My Auntie LOVES polar bears so after a little research to confirm that polar bears do in fact live in Russia this is what I came up with. I had a ton of help from my bestie Wanda, hubby, my sister, my mom, my teacher at Kit and Clowder. We figured out the right digis and placement and colors and and and they rocked helping. Mrs Wanda spent hours on the phone listening to me try and piece all my ideas together!!!
And here it is:

Materials used:
Kit and Clowder- Animals Class- Polar Bear Lesson
Glacier: BG09, BG05, Bg01, BG000
Snow: C1, C3, C5, BG72
Polar Bears: E43, E53, E50, W3, W5
Boy Clothes: B39,B37,B34
Girl Clothes: R29,R27, R24

I did a little research on Russian Polar Bears and put a little blurb in a snowflake on the back of the picture frame for her. 

And for her card I took the Ice Princess I had colored and turned her into a card front:
 I know the one snowflake cut really poorly but what can ya do? 
Frame, Snowflakes and Trees are from the Disney Frozen cricut cartridge
I created some gold rings (Russian wedding symbol) and translated congratulations into Russian as the sentiment. 

I also had to find a Russian recipe and some Russian wedding traditions. I did create a little card for the traditions but ran out of time for the recipe so it just got printed off of pinterest. LOL

I hope she loves it!! It was soo much work but I had so much fun making it all and I learned sooooo much!

I am entering the Polar Bears in these challenges:
