Singing Angel Christmas Card
Ralph Waldo Emerson once said: "Let us be silent that we may hear the whisper of God." An angel is a messenger that brings holy messages, and during Christmas time it is a festive symbol that most of us can associate with. Make a Christmas card with a little angel as the focal point. The pure white of her wings and the angelic face will bring a message of "peace and joy" to the recipient.
