Perfect Sentiment Challenge #100 - Christmas Sketch

This week at the Perfect Sentiment Challenge we would like you to create a Christmas card using our fun sketch. We are being sponsored by Pattie's Creations. I used her lovely image called "Merry Christmas Lamp Post." Her prize is 3 free digis for one lucky winner this week.

The papers are from My Mind's Eye "Merry" collection and I colored the image with Copics. Because the image is a decorated lamp post, I wanted a sentiment about light, so I made one up that starts on the front and continues inside.  I wanted the message of this sentiment to draw attention to Christ's love that can fill our heart and our life with His light, to show us how to live and to lead others to Him.
You are welcome to use this sentiment if you want. Here it is as a jpg. I separated it as the front sentiment and the inside sentiment below. You should click on it to get the larger format, then right click to do a "save as."
I used this sketch that we'd like you to use to join in our challenge this week. It has so many possibilities!

I'm sharing this card with the following challenges:
