I love this, the colors are so gentle and peaceful and what an inventive idea to use maps as the paper -- conjurs up thoughts of the places they fly off to (the birds, of course -- smile).

Lovely pieces! I like the contrast of the detailed papers with the pure white textured background. I also like that little shadow along some of the cut edges.
