Security Envelopes: Oh The Possibilities 1

Start looking at credit card bills and junk mail in a different way!  Next time you open those bills, pay attention to the patterned envelope linings, as you might discover something new and be inspired.  With lots and lots of prettiness out there (who knew?), design potential certainly abounds!
