Taylored Expressions Calendar Challenge - June!

Hi everyone!  Happy Thursday!
Today I have another page of my Desktop Calendar to share with you as part of the Taylored Expressions Calendar Challenge!  I had so much fun creating this!  There are lots of fabulous of calendar products available HERE at Taylored Expressions....we'd love you to play along...Taylor's blog has all the deets!
My calendar is actually for my Mom, and each month I give her the new page.  Both her Birthday and my Dad's Birthdays are in June, so I went with a Birthday theme for this month!  I started by stamping the cake and candles from Make A Wish in Memento Tuxedo Black ** onto Choice Snow White Cardstock.  I colored the cake with Copic Markers, added some glitter, fussy cut it out and then added Espresso Dimensional Pearls on the bottom.
**Speaking of Memento inks...Taylor has all the new colors in stock (yay) and I've already got mine in hand.  LOVE the new shades!!
I cut a piece of cardstock for the base using the Take Note Frame 3 Taylored Die and then impressed it with the Scallops and Circles Taylored Impression Plate.  I wrapped some Baker's Twine around the panel and then attached the cake with Foam Tape.  I cut out two balloons using the Make A Wish Balloons Taylored Dies and attached them to the calendar page with Foam Tape.  A bit more Baker's Twine grounds them to the focal panel.

I cut out a little tag using the Mini Tags Taylored Dies out of Choice Snow White Cardstock and stamped "hb" on it using the You're My Type Lower set.  I added that to the panel with some more twine.  I just LOVE these Mini Tags Taylored Dies...they give any project a certain little something extra!

Here are the Copic Markers I've used on my page:
