This little LIGHTof mine

The card Party went well, which has kept me busy, then off sick for a while, but now I am back and with this week's SALT challenge is set by Ruth 'The theme for this week is LIGHT It is mentioned so many times in the Bible, and has many facets of meaning and symbolism. I am the LIGHT of the World... The people walking in darkness have seen a great LIGHT ...The LIGHT shines in the darkness, but the darkness has not understood it...In the same way, let your LIGHT shine before men, that they may see your good deeds and praise your Father in heaven. Please create a piece of work using it as inspiration and leave us a message so we can see and link to our work. '

My immediate thought was to create a silouhette picture and then to illuminate it with candles, I cut most of the picture by hand, but the birds are done with a punch, then I wrote the verse on using permanent pen. It reads 12When Jesus spoke again to the people, he said, "I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life." John 8:12
