New Anyone for Anya Challenge

Second Post Today, Scroll down for Kenny K Challenge Project!!
I am so excited about this challenge and have been waiting for ages (well it seems like it) to do it and share.
Each month one of our Challenges is going to be a Calendar piece. I have been wanting an excuse to make one and this has pushed me to get on with it!
My first Picture isn't par to the challenge, but I want to start at the beginning. This is going to be the cover to my Birthday Calendar.
I have used my fastly growing favourite papers, LOVE LETTER from Stampin' Up. The Ribbon is also form Stampin' Up - Stripped Grosgrain. The lettering is a Sizzlet Set called Fruit Smoothie - I do love this and it has been much used lately!
The Image is a CC Designs - another favourite of mine! Called Balloon Emma. I have also combined two techniques here. I have paper Pieced the Balloon and Emma's Top, but then to give some depth I have used a promarker to add shading. Vanilla is the Promarker colour which matches very well with these papers.
Now onto this week's Challenge - BIRTHDAY CALENDAR - ANYTHING GOES
Here is JANUARY - I have a few birthdays in January, but the most important one is my Hubbie's so I have dedicated this page to him.
I have used SU Papers - CELEBRATIONS. I have also used a SU Stamp Set - PARTY THIS WAY. I love them both. Actually there isn't much about this years SU Cattie I don't like!
I stamped and layered up the balloon. No surprise the image is Balloon Trevor!

I have stamp some balloons and layered them up. I stamped Happy Birthday onto some plain ribbon, attached a button and stuck to card using diamond effect.

Here are a couple of links if you want to use the same calendar page:
