Cinema Saturday #62

This weeks Cinema Saturday movie is Night At The Mueseum. I really like this movie, and there were so many directions we could have gone in with inspiration. Brooke & Sankari made the required element "something minature", which did throw me a bit but it was a great idea, it tied in so well with the movie. I found I kept thinking about how it was the mueseum of natural history, so I went the nature tangent (I would have gone Egyptian if I'd had Egyptian stamps!). I guess my "minature" element is open to interpretation, but I decided to make a smaller than standard card, and to play with proportions... so I put a little birdie on a big flower smile

The card base is a scallop note card (which I received in a Secret Santa gift, thanks Santa!), and I added a strip of textured Chocolate Chip cardstock behind the scallops so the card could stand up on it's end. Colours were somewhat inspired by the outfit that Rebecca wears while showing a tour group around the muesem. I don't know that you'll necessarily look at this card and think "Night at the Mueseum!" (though there is that line about "a little birdie told me..."), but I think it turned out rather cute.
