One Layer and Coloring on Kraft

My previous card had such bright colors, so I went with a more neutral color scheme for this one.
I just got this cute Whiff of Joy digi and thought it would be perfect for a male card as well as for the speed theme over at LIM.
For me one layer cards are the most difficult ones to make, but I like to challenge myself, and I did so by not only opting for a one layer design, but also by coloring on kraft using my Inktense pencils. I've used greys, black, white and a little touch of pink for the mouse's ear and nose.
It's also the first time I've tried the doodled frame technique - it's definitely a technique I will use again for future cards.
The sentiment in Norwegian is stamped with black ink, and it can be translated into both happy birthday and congratulations.

I enter this card into these challenges:
1) Less Is More - #123 Need for Speed
2) Paper Crafting Journey - Masculine cards
3) Penny's Paper-Crafty - #130 Birthdays
4) Try It On Tuesday - One For The Men
5) Make it Monday with Kraft Outlet - Clean & Simple

Love the look of this! That image is so precious...the inktense pencils colour well on the kraft.
Are they the ones that are sort of all colour with no wood edge?

I'm asking as I always struggle to colour on kraft. copics are never true to colour and my cheapo pencils are not true either!!!
Yours look great!

Off to catch up on your cards as DH had the internet commected for me up at the RV...finally!
