Good Sunday to you and Happy Tax Day! LOL - well, I guess you actually have one more day....
Here's an easy card that I made using a sketch from a sketch group I belong to called CardSketchesByZacksNana. We're just a small group of ladies that trade cards once a month and the cool part is that we have friends now in Austrailia and Canada and the US! Lots of fun.

BASE CARD and MAT
Cut a piece of gray card stock measuring 5 1/2" x 8 1/2", score at 4 1/4", and fold. Cut a piece of patterned paper measuring 4 1/8" x 5 3/8", and mount on the front of the card.
Cut/emboss a large scalloped oval from pink card stock. Cut/emboss a plain oval just smaller than the pink oval. Mount the white oval onto the pink oval.
Stamp the image with gray ink at one end of the oval. Cut the oval just to the left of the image, and mount on the left side of the card.
Cut a piece of gray card stock measuring 1 3/4" x 4 1/4", and a piece of pink card stock measuring 1 1/2" x 4 1/4". Mount the pink strip onto the gray. Mount a strip of white ribbon around strip length-wise, putting a twist in the ribbon at the point you will mount the bow. This creates the illusion that you tied the bow around the strip.
Tie a pretty bow using the peg bow maker, trim the ends, and glue the bow over the twist in the ribbon.
