Hi lovelies, hope you are well! Today I am sharing my DT creations for this month's challenge over at Arty Divas The theme is as always ATG. 

I have created these teeny retro mini Valentine cards, which measure 3inch x 4inch. Super cute! 

Our sponsor is Lilli Rain Designs and there is a fabulous prize for the winner of the challenge! The little retro Valentine collage sheet. 

To create my card, I first started with blank Kraft cardstock which I scored myself. These wonderful papers are from:

Music sheet is from my own stash 

I edged the paper with vintage photo distress ink, then adhered them with double sided tape. Next, I adhered this sweet bingo card and then I adhered this darling retro valentine image from the collage sheet above from Lilli Rain Designs.

I repeated the same technique for this card also. 

Finally, I printed out these words and adhered them on to my card. 

I really hope that I have inspired you to create your own retro cards and I also hope that you will join us over at Arty Divas!

Thanks so much for stopping by the Den, see you on the next post!
