  46. I literally said "Wow!" out loud when I saw this card. I don't often think of NN for elegant cards (It's Newton! He plays in things adorably!), but this is so sophisticated and lovely. This stamp set is lovely, and you used it to its fullest effect! I love the watercoloring, your choice of colors, how you did the background...so, basically, I loved everything. Also, that was a great instructive video on what you did and why you did it, so I have subscribed. Thanks for participating in Taheerah's advent calendar; I look forward to seeing more from you!
