"But they only dealt one card
So for me it is not hard
Youre the bright star in my chart
You go straight to my heart"

I made the playing card, then clamped it in a modelling stand that allowed me to move it around while shooting from a fixed position on a tripod using natural light from the window. Selected images were then cut out and layered in PhotoShop, resized and some blurred. The background is a painted fence that has had motion and gaussian blur applied. The back of the shaft was duped, stretched and motion blurred. The whole image took about four hours to complete, including the photography.
