25-year-old Minnesota native Amber Rousse made this gorgeous quilled map of the world, over a period of six months. She’s clearly a creative gal — check out her blog “About Me” photo — Vitruvian Amber!

She started out by drawing the map on thin cardboard. Then she tackled the land first, accounting for mountains by making taller quilled pieces. When the land was finished, she made large, gorgeous sweeping swirls of green to represent the ocean, and then filled in the rest.

So beautiful!
