Your card is adorable and sure to be a hit with the recepient. I'd send both cards - who's gonna notice the bow?

Good luck with the tooth. It may hurt a bit, but it's a great excuse for a weekend of eating ice cream!!!!!!

Adorable cards! I like both bows ... a little scrunch adds the handmade character to the card. I'm bow challenged even when following directions!

Good luck with your tooth and have a fabulous weekend!
