Sure , I have seen it done lots of times but I have also seen it done wrong. make sure all the edges line up and level, if not you will see all the seams through the liner.

Sounds like you arhigh and low pointe doing it right. Just level off the base under the styrofoam so there is no high and low points and you are good to go.
