You're nearly there, your main problem is the 10k resistor in the emitter line. This reduces the current that can flow through the led to a minuscule amount. The correct configuration is to put the current limiting resistor in the collector line. Hopefully the following sketch will show how.
The value of the collector resistor will vary depending on the forward voltage of the led (typically around 3v) and the current of the led (typically around 20mA). The value is determined by (Vs -Vf)/If, where Vs is the supply voltage, Vf is the led forward voltage and If is the led forward current. Using typical values we get (6-3)/.02 = 150ohm.
