Mushrooming + poker = ?

OK, this was a real challenge for me. I was supposed to make a male card for a guy who often goes for mushrooming and then he likes to play cards with the others mushroom lovers. Does it have any connection???
I decided to make this card according to Totally Gorjuss's sketch:
I've changed the dimensions a little, but hope it still counts.
 The cards are real and they are covered with plastic. Fortunately I found a tutorial lately which gave me an inspiration how to make the 'plastic' card from ordinary paper card. You have to emboss it! Totally! Hope you can see it.
 I also stamped the card with a B'day sentiment - it was not easy to stamp a plastic card. I embossed the sentiment to protect it.
The yellow-red-blue twine is made by me from 3 separate twines in the manner I remember from my childhood. My mum made tons of knitting stuff (I hate knitting!), and I had to help her sometimes with wool clewing or making such twisted strings. As we say here: the teaching didn't escape to forest (even though all the mushrooms did) :D
Want some mushrooms? Or card game? Feel free to join me here: the mushrooming! :D
