ok, the 2011 topic is posted for the graceful envelope contest, sponsored by the washington calligraphers guild. the current flyer is posted here -- http://www.calligraphersguild.org/PDF/2011GracefulEnvelopeFlier.pdf
i am planning to create an envelope for this, and i would like to challenge anyone who likes to be creative to join me. all the expense would be a stamp and your creative time/energy. who knows who might have the winning idea for this topic!
anyone interested in participating can see more information here -- http://www.calligraphersguild.org/envelope.html
they also have several years of winning submissions posted for all age groups!
