Lucia's BD Card

Supplies used: SU Medalion BG stamp, Ranger Faded Photo ink. Very Vanilla and Soft Suede CS. Bow Easy and quilling tool
I really like to make special cards for my family. It's always something I focus on when I sit down to make a card. This card is for my sister, Lucia's, BD. She is an incredibly talented singer and teacher, has the most intelligent son and gifted daughter, that I always stress about making a special card for her. I LOVE this new medallion stamp from SU!. It makes card-making so easy, it's bold and elegant all at once. All I did was stamp the Medallion with Faded Photo Distress Ink by Ranger, added a center piece (the quilled flower that I had already made) and a satin bow (used the Bow Easy), and I knew Lucia's card was done!! Hope you like it!!

I have to ask - what did you stamp it with? Is that an ink color, or is it an embossed ink - can't tell from the photo!
