I say give it to her... it looks yummy, and isn't boring. Sure it may not show off all of your talents, but with short notice, AND it's for your BF's mom, what is she gonna expect?!? A three tiered fondant cover masterpiece? icon_lol.gificon_rolleyes.gif

Your scroll work on the original is really good. Think I would have laid the chocolate transfers flat , not had them at all or made them bigger to "stick out". You could have done HB larger too so it could have been seen. One you gave turned out cute too.

I Prefer the first one or you can decorate the last one with bits of fondant cuts, like daisys with leaves... the set fast, or change the bow color maybe, I'd improve the gift box one.
