The Guard

Psalm 141:3--"Set a guard over my mouth, O Lord; keep watch over the door of my lips."
Wow! Did this verse grab me! I had just downloaded some new pictures from a seller and here was a guard. Now, to put it all together. I really need to take heed of this scripture as my lips seem to do their own thing much of the time. This needs to be my prayer every day!

I used a playing card (2 1/2" x 3 1/2") for the base, cut ephemera to fit, added a brass heart lock and drew a key in the guard's hand. The door actually opens and closes on this poor prisoner. I used a strip of sheer ribbon as the hinge.
