I got the best ever birthday card today. Shannon and Billy gave me this Quilling Card. It is the art of rolling and coiling small strips of paper to create patterns. It dates back to Egyptian times. The art got its name due to the use of bird's quills to coil the paper upon. This is so stunning! And, I do love birds;-) Go to QuillingCard.com for lots of gorgeous greeting cards.
Here is a close-up of the head of the heron.
And, here is a close-up of part of the feathers of the side of the bird.
