Playing with Paper Tubes

Hello lovely peeps, and a very warm welcome to my new followers.

I just wanted to share with you the cards I made before/during our club session last night.

I got the idea for the heart card from the February issue of Making Cards magazine, you basically cut a heart shape out of card, roll 5cm strips of thin decorative paper around a pencil and attach the rolls to the shape before trimming to fit the shape.
I used some of the gorgeous papers from the Winnie Sugar Sprinkles CD , and the sentiment is from the Sensational Sentiments stamp sheet by Polkadoodles. They're printed onto 120gsm Super Smooth paper.

For my second card I wanted to use a different shape. I was going to use a star but came across some nautical themed digi papers on my computer which gave me the idea to use part of a circle as the bottom half of a boat.

The papers on this one are called 'Land Ho' from Nitwit Collections
I used more paper rolls for the mast and an offcut for the flag (I also used some offcuts in place of foam pads/silicone glue to raise up the sails as I would have had to use loads!!!).
The sentiment was stamped with my old stand-by alphabet Multi Retro from My Sentiments Exactly.

I would like to enter my boat card in the following challenges:-
