If the object having its backgroundPattern set is the card or stack, 
proper alignment can depend on the specifics of the image.  For example, 
if the image has a mask inset from the image bounds, setting the 
backgroundPattern will cause the tiling to begin with the image's 
topLeft, which can result in a misaligned placement when it gets tiled 
within the object.

Using a separate object like a graphic would help, though for reasons I 
don't fully understand I've found no other method of displaying images 
that render as quickly button icons.
