Always my winner Grandad

My dad has a birthday soon and my son asked me to make him a card for his Grand-dad. Now normally I manage male cards quite easily but my dad is always hard as apart from watching TV and family he has not a lot more than a passing interest in anything else. I asked my son to come up with an idea of what he would like on the card and he came up with the idea I used.

When mum and dad come over for Sunday lunch , after lunch we usually play a game , either a board game (there are many more very good fun board games other than monopoly and cluedo) but usually we end up playing spades. We usually play this as mum and dad have got the rules so they find it easier than learning something new.

The 5 cards displayed on the card would win 5 tricks, I would have put a full hand on that would have won every trick which would be my dad's dream hand but he would also be very happy with these 5 cards in his hand and 10 cards although not full sized were just too much on the card.

I used a kraft base card and a piece of basic grey paper that has a distressed look and I took it one step further and distressed the edges . I stuck the cards in the center and added peel offs finishing the sentiment with some hand written words in a similar style to the peel-off words. 

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:-

crafting when we can -celebrating any occasion
