Christmas Paper Piecing in April

Good morning everyone I feel so much better today the sun is actually shining here first time this week!! I hope that all my lovely friends and followers are well. Today I'm posting a couple of cards  that I made on Thursday at my Craft Group . We did paper piecing something I've not done before and made these two gorgeous backgrounds I added them to the Kraft Card and decorated them in a CAS style.



 
They are very different to my normal style of cards but I thought they looked good. .
