October Stamp Club Challenge Card

Hello crafty people

Last night was the monthly stamp club gathering and we had a great time as always.

Last month we were given a challenge piece that was a real challenge for me. 
(I guess that's why its considered a challenge)
It is a lenticular lens scene - halloween themed. I know you are wondering what is a lenticular lens??? We we've all seen them and held them and looked at them with some awe, or at least I have. A lenticular lens will change if you move it back and forth. Check out the definition here

I took a few pics of the piece in hopes you can see the scene changes if I re-positioned my hand.

The ghosts are different and so is the pumpkin

OK anyway, this piece is large, it's a 6"X 6" piece 
and if I trimmed it, some of the scenes would be cut off
 So I decided to make a trick or treat bag 
and this challenge piece would be the focal point
of a bag topper. 

I used a white gift bag and covered the front with an orange print DP piece

Next I made my bag topper
I cut a scalloped rectangle and then layered a purple scalloped rectangle piece over that.
On the purple layer I added the lenticular piece.
Adding some bats and some scull & cross bones die cuts really finished it off.

I slid it onto the bag over one of the handles and WELLA.....
it's a trick ot treat bag

This bag could also be used as a larger spooky dried flower arrangement holder 
or a great gift bag to hold a gift

I love making bag toppers.
They really dress up a plain bag. 
I think it gives the bag its own personality.

Paper/Card Stock: Purple CS, Black CS, DP
Ink: Distress Ink - Old Paper (used on the skull & bones)
Dies Used: Sizzix Tim Holtz Mini Bat & Skull set (Movers & Shapers)  Spellbinders Grand Scalloped Rectangles
Accessories: White Gift Bag, Lenticular Lens Halloween scene

I am submitting my project in the following challenges:
