Askewed





So, I am a crafter who tends to lines things up, makes things even, evens things up. But today, as I was adhering the knotted ribbon onto the front panel, I noticed something. Where the paper had randomly lain, it looked quite nice at an askewed angle. (Ok, I don't know if askewed is a word. haha)

So there you go. "A Happy Accident" as my Art 111 Professor would say! I created this card for the Corrosive Blog Challenge #8. The sentiment is from Paper Makeup Stamps. They actually have a swirly cool tree. But we can't have ever stamp, now, can we! So make do. And the tree from SU's Seasons of Friendship is awesome! So glad it's in my collection.

Now...I'm off to pack up the car for Brownies. What a meeting we'll be having. In the mean time...Have a Happy Earth Day.

EDITED: Okay, I know words, I just can't spell them! haha Thanks Anita for gently correcting me. I got out the dictionary. So "ascrew" is just a mispelled word! See, I learned something new today!!
