I know, believe me. It gets harder and harder to make something new and unique. I can remember well over a year ago thinking everything had already been done, and not sure where my next deck idea would come from.
That is all we do for the most part, is make our own renditions of decks by other designers that we like, and modify previous deck styles we made. I wasn't knocking you for mimicking the effect, just pointing out the obvious I guess.
Thx for that link btw. I had never seen wikimedia commons before. Some of those SVG suit files will come in handy for some new decks.
