Hearts in June

Happy June everyone...we are now half way through 2017 and of course as it's 1st of the month, (pinch,punch), it's time for a brand new challenge over at Country View.
My garden finally realises that it is June and the flowers out there are precious.

For June at Country View we have a really lovely theme...hearts..I have made 2 cards for this theme and today I am sharing part card 1.
I chose some summery D'Oxides for my background and added a sprinkle of water. My background reminded me of ice cream.
 I then add some heart stencilling
 I used an old Lili of the Valley quote stamp which I love using for birthday cards and die cut it.
I used an inky mop up piece of card and die cut some hearts using my Cheery Lynn hearts frame

 I just used the large outside frame for my can see what I did with the other die cuts on Monday when I share my 2nd DT project.
Here is my card, finished off with a heart brad and a couple of sequins. It has already sold at Dotty's
There is plenty of inspiration over on the challenge blog from my talented Teamies and all the details can be seen here. You might even be lucky enough to win the £20 voucher which is up for grabs to a random winner.
I would like to enter my card into the following challenges;
