Straighflex 90 Installed Reverse

Got tired of hearing that it was taking forever to finish a soffit I had to build in our kitchen. Really want to hire someone to do the taping but ran out of time and decided to give it a go myself.

Purchase everything I need and got moving it. I’ve done very small drywall jobs but never used straight fleet 90. I thought I did a decent job, then while cleaning up I reread the directions on the box and realized I put the tape on backward. It’s about 20 lf where the ceiling hits the wall and ceiling, 40 lf total.

Can instill use this or did I totally screw up?!!!!!!??

Definitely not a drywaller. Just registered and though the question was what trade my question was related to.
