[pstricks] PST-PDF & TikZ

I'm having a hard time making "pst-pdf" cut the bounding box of the 
flowchart that I'm making. I have used TikZ  package for the flowchart 
itself, but decided to cut it with pst-pdf. Unfortunately it only cuts 
three sides, leaving the right side whith a large blank spot.
Best regards: M. Hristov

Here the source code:



% Define block styles
\tikzstyle{dia} = [diamond, draw, fill=blue!20,text width=5em, text 
badly centered, node distance=2.5cm, inner sep=0pt,]
\tikzstyle{rec} = [rectangle, draw, fill=blue!20,text width=14em, text 
centered, rounded corners, minimum height=2.5em]
\tikzstyle{line} = [draw, -latex']
\tikzstyle{round rec} = [draw, rounded 
rectangle,fill=orange!20,draw=orange, thick, node distance=3cm,minimum 
height=2em, text width=5em, text centered]
\tikzstyle{del} = [draw=none,fill=none, inner sep=-5pt, minimum 
size=2pt, node distance=6.3em,minimum height=0.1mm]


\begin{tikzpicture}[node distance = 1.5cm, auto]

    % Place nodes

    \node [rec, below of=A] (B) {PC \ding{213} 2 node};
