History makes people wise

Here is a change from the "cute" cards that I have been making lately! I created this project for the Cinema Saturday Challenge #62-Night at the Museum. This is actually a 5x7 picture that I made for my son. I just have to get a frame for it. He is a History teacher and I thought that he could put it in his classroom. I have seen both of the Night at the Museum movies quite a few times and they are really fun. Ben Stiller is one of my favorite actors. Anyway I took the inspiration from all of the history shown in this movie, of course! I never really liked History in school but my son and husband gives me a new appreciation for it because they love it!

I printed the saying from the computer. I layered stickers and rubons from my stash. The Eiffel Tower is embossed in pewter. You are supposed to put a miniature on your project so I am counting it as a miniature! I then rubbed Ranger walnut distress ink on it. I ran the brown panel through the Argyle Cuttlebug folder. Thanks for stopping by for your History lesson today!
