PTI Make It Monday #150: Window Screen Cards - baby

This week over at Papertrey, the talented Melissa shows us how to make window screen cards.  Love using my cover plates in a different way.  You can take a look at another card where I used it as a whole front - very delicate looking:
Anyway, back to this week's MIM ...  I decided to make a baby card that I needed to do for a colleague.  Here's what I came up with:
I started with a white card base and cut a Sweet Blush cover plate with the Hexagon Cover Plate.  I layered a light grey (Staples) card front with some Mini Blooms stamped in Fresh ink (red currant, fuschia, tuscan olive).
I decided the circle needed a frame so I added a Recollections silver shimmer frame and then a Raspberry Fizz 'baby' die cut from PTI's word dies.  I cut some thin slivers of foam tape and coloured it with a reddish pink Distress marker to blend it in a bit more.  I decided to add some Wink of Stella clear glitter - very subtle but love the way it looks!
Here's a better shot of the shimmery die cut - have you tried these pens?  They rock!!  I bought silver and gold too but I use the clear the most.
Are you playing along this week?  Any creations so far?
