CBitmap & CImageList

I'm interested in making a simple card game and wonder if CBitmap or CImageList classes would be enough to do the job? If yes, would some one tell me about a book or a tutorial on the net that might help me in learning these two classes? I tried to read the MS documentation but couldn't understand it.

 Thank you in advance.

You may get a shortcut here. There is a sample in the Platform SDK that implements a CCardDraw class. Although it is an ActiveX control, you may extract what you need.

"This sample ActiveX Control implements a standard playing card, with the ability to show the standard 52 card deck, 2 jokers, and 13 different card backs. This control is a Windowless control, which uses transparency to create the missing card corner effect."

It is under
Visual C++ Documentation\Samples\SDK Samples\COM Samples\Alternative ActiveX Control Development Framework Samples\BaseCtl: ActiveX Control Development Framework\Card: Windowless ActiveX Control
