Just Married

We have a family friend getting married tomorrow and I am so excited to make a fun card for him. It was kind of fun making a card from a boy perspective. I thought this sketch from Card Patterns would be a ton of fun as well.
Here is my card
Thank the good Lord this card is for my guy friend as the outside edges are not the same and I didn't fix it. Why don't I notice this until I take a picture and upload it? How sad is that?
Anyway, I had a lot of fun and will definately try this again. The background grid is a bunch of different cosmo cricket paper (as sad as I am I can't remember the collection, but it is fairly recent and it is a boy line LOL). I cut out 1X1 squares for this 5X5 vintage white base. I then used my ranger distress inks to distress all of the pieces.
My main image is from the fun PTI set called Enjoy the ride. I am so loving that PTI has dies to match some of their images in the stamp sets. Truely inovative and it sure is selling me on more and more of their sets (like I needed more and more LOL!!!). I stamped this with Hawian Shores ink. I hadn't used it yet and it definately needed to be tested LOL. I do like that color, jury is still out on the ink pad. The background was vellum cardstock from PTI that I paper pierced to add some dimension.
It's a good life!

Seriously not sure what you refer to as uneven edges. I think your card looks great!
