I knew the minute I saw "cake poker" that this was the one I would use. The image of a Royal Flush sitting on a cake immediately came to mind. With the funky background, I decided to glitz it up a bit by bobbin drawing heavy gold braid around the top/sides.....almost like a neon sign would beckon you in to play a game. I fused the real cards to the fabric and quilted the background using the triangles as a guide.
I limited myself to work on this for 2 hours between other projects. It all went together very quickly. This was fun and I chuckle every time I look at it.
