Stampin' Up! Big Shot Vintage Wallpaper and I create a layered New Mum card

Hi guys! I created once more before bed last night (or should I say this morning?) Any way, here is the card
This white on white card came together quicker than it may seem once I knew what I wanted to do! The scallops are made using a circle punch and some white card. I embossed some white through the Big Shot using the Vintage Wallpaper Embossing folder, then cut it out and layered it with some smooth white card cut into circles. I added some white grosgrain ribbon and the pre-coloured image that was sitting on my (messy) desk for a couple of weeks. I coloured this Greeting Farm Mummy using my Stampin' Write Markers on watercolour paper. 
I am entering this into a couple of challenges that seemingly don't go together at all, but a little smooshing and they go well.... The Simon Says Challenge of all white with a coloured image firstly, the Moxie Fab World Tuesday Trigger Luminous Layers which is all colourful... I went with the layering and the scallops as my inspiration here instead of all the colours, and finally the Ribbon Carousel Challenge to do something "edgy" I am going to claim my scallops are a fancy form of edging.... I'm not sure how relevant it is, but I think it works  :)
Anyway, I'm going to go, get ready for work and hopefully will craft later tonight, until then, 
Happy Stamping!
