Make It Monday #5: Distressing Edges

Well this is something I have never done...distressing edges.  I see this technique used quite often, but was never really sure it was my style.  So, I decided to make a masculine card and thought it would be fitting.  I need a card for my FIL's birthday.  I wasn't sure how the Pinefeather paper and Simply Chartruese ink would look together, but I think it turned out ok!

I'm a little unsure how much distressing to do...

I distressed every edge with the exception of the card base itself (Rustic White). 
Thanks for looking!
