Same Digi 3 Ways

I'm glad it's a holiday for me. DH has taken Peanut to the store and I'm spending quality time in the craft room - crafting and listening to a wonderful story on the radio about Martin Luther King.
The first challenge this week at Some Odd Girl's Anniversary celebration is to use the same digi three ways. I made this set today. I think it would be great for a going away set - a card, gift tag, small container for something nice, and a note card.

The container is a recycled food container from our local BBQ place. I like to reuse these containers. I used Tiny Tia for my digi. To make the patterned paper, I made a pattern of Tia in PSE and then overlayed it with the purple polka dot paper, so the lines are mostly purple with a little yellow. I added flowers and a butterfly to make the top of the container. I wrapped a ribbon around the base and made a bow.

I don't have close-ups of the gift tag and note card. For those, I used the same Tia pattern, but without the overlay so that the lines are black. I thought the card, box, and tag could be used at a going away party and then the notecard could be used to write your friend a letter after she's settled in her new place.
For the card, I colored Tia using Copics. I used a sentiment from Raindrop Echo. I used the polka dot paper on the outside and the Tia patterned paper on the inside.

Happy Crafting!
