I couldn't get a perfect oval with a new Fiskars oval cutter, so I returned it, thinking I can cut out crooked ovals just fine on my own. Well, I was right. Here are some crooked ovals for DH. :)
I had an oval sticker, and this sticker had borders. I used vellum as tracing paper, and traced the sticker and its borders, and then cut out my traces. So now I have several ovals, good for layering too. But they are all crooked.

I think the crooked ovals add to the charm of the card - and I too wouldn't have noticed until you pointed them out. Going into my favorites :-)

Crooked ovals??? I hadn't noticed....Love this little guy! I finally broke down and purchased this set before it was gone forever. I just finished mounting and am ready to go! Thanks for the inspiration!
