I made those playing cards decks some time ago motivated by the Bellot set from GNOME Games being licensed as LGPL, so not free enough for the Open Clip Art Library (where the requirement is for release as Public Domain).
There are four variants: ornamental, white, bordered" and simple. Feedback on my blog and OpenClipart.org mailing list indicated ornamental as the nicer one.
So I submited them right away in the Open Clip Art Library and after some months, encouraged by Alan submitted the ornamental variant to GNOME Games (they made 2.14).
Coming no present day and to the actual news, it seems those cards are making a way in KDE 4, with the white variant considered a favorite.
Nice to have my cards set in both GNOME and KDE :p
