I knew I'd saved these for a reason. :)

Post challenge: I used simple scotch tape to put it together. All of the cards are at least a couple years old and expired. The original plan was to light it on fire, but I just didn't have time.

Thanks for all the comments and votes.

PCI-DSS compliance (payment card security) violation? Congrats Ken!
Did you really clone out the names from all cards? :)

Sorry to hear you 'cheated' with scotch tape Ken! I've cloned all the cards and there was still one active one so thanks for the 5D MKIII ;)

I collect 'stuff' as well in the hope I can use it here sometime (currently collecting empty beer cans and whisky bottles).

Congrats on a well-executed idea. Who would have thought you'd evr win another ribbon? ;-)

Congrats on the ribbon and a good allusion to current events. Guess you could say you got this ribbon on credit.
Great job Ken.
It sort of has a "plastic" feel to it thought. : )

04/23/2012 12:37:19 AM
Well done, Ken!! How did you stack all those up??
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/23/2012 12:21:18 AM
No Capital One? You should have had a viking smash the thing.

ETA: LOL. I guess you do have one. Still needs the viking though.

Cute idea. I like how you blurred names, but am surprised you left the numbers.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Probably my favorite image from this challenge.
Lots of time to make sure this doesn't collapse (tape i guess).

A great comparison to the current North American economic situation. A pyramid built on credit/lending. A slight breeze and it all falls over.
This gets a 10.
