Michigan, USA

A lovely Michigan map! Well, its bonus is coz its on a blue background....for some reason, the blue colour makes everything look much more beautiful :)
I mean, a card can be very plain...if the blue is the predominant colour on it, then the card transforms into something lovely

Here are some facts about the state of Michigan:

- Capital: Lansing
- Area: 58,216 Sq. Mi
- Population 8, 874, 083  (well, this is a subject to CONSTANT change)
- Motto: - Si Quaeris Peninsulam Amoenam Circumspice - If you seek a pleasant peninsula, look about you
- Flower: Apple Blossom
- Bird: Robin
- Tree: White Pine
- Nicknames: The Great Lakes State, The Automotive State, The Wolverine State, Water-Winter Wonderland

without a doubt, that last nickname scores my points

its the state's motto which got me into thinking....but i figured it out when i took a look at the US map ;-)
