B&W CAS Card for Festive Friday
B&W CAS Card for Festive Friday
Welcome back for another Festive Friday!
This is our penultimate Festive Friday challenge for 2019, and we’ve got a fun Inspo List for you! December 15th is National Wear Your Pearls Day. National Wear Your Pearls Day, founded by author DeAnna Bookert, is actually a celebration of embracing the beauty of your life, a beauty that is often formed through hardships and trials. As papercrafters, I’m sure we all have some pearls in our collection just waiting to adorn any and every project. Of course, if you don’t have pearls, we have 9 other items you can pick from to qualify for the challenge!
(affiliate links are used in this post. When you click on them and make a purchase, I may receive a small commission at no additional cost to you. Thanks for supporting my blog!)
Using the Inspo List, grab at least three items and create a project to link to the challenge. There’s a wide range of ideas to choose from, so even if don’t have pearls, you can still play along!

Here’s my take
I chose circles, clean & simple, black & white, pink, and embossing paste
Even though I picked five of the 10 elements, the card is clean & simple – just a single layer with a popped up sentiment!
