S card

The Milliande challenge issued was to create a piece featuring words that were meaningful to us beginning with the letter S. Her example was text-heavy and shapeless, so I tried to think of another way to put words on a card other than in a list. I don't know why the idea of a playing card came to me, but I ran with it.
This is, of course, an ATC, which is the same size as a playing card.  It feels unfinished, but I am stuck - I am at that point where adding more doesn't feel like an improvement, but I know it isn't the best it could be, either.   This is the reaction of a woman who has ruined a few cards by putting too much on them.

Anyway, the words are things that are important to me, and the images are too.  Hatter, artist, bowler, that's me.  Card player, too.  None of those words start with S, though.

Well of course it looks unfinished. It needs a nice zentangle pattern on the back in blue or red.
