Huggable Hank...err Marty!

Hi stampin' friends! Well, this card is one of my favorite non Magnolias that I've made lately! This is Huggable Hank fro High Hopes, but the card is for our Great nephew, Marty who turns 5 on Saturday! I kept the embellishments to a minimum 'cuz what does a 5 year old care about that stuff! The rope is what Marty would use to tie poor old Hank up within minutes!

The inside sentiment (an oldie) says, "This hug's for you!" Happy birthday!
My copic colors are YG01, YG91, YG93 and a little YG97. The lavendar wings are BV000, BV11, Bv13. I used some Woo and W2 around him and on his nails and spikes. I see spots I could have blended more, but I'm pretty happy with him!
Answers to a couple of questions:
I drew the black lines around the injured dog on Saturday's post (no stamp)
My HP Printer that I got last year (before researching!) is a great printer, but since it feeds through the front it would not feed through the heavier paper that I wanted to print on. It simply required the paper to make too sharp a curve as it went around the printer. The rear tray means the paper slides down through with hardly any bending-Easy-peasy printing :)
Thanks for asking-ask anything you're wondering about-I know I leave things out or don't explain them well!
Enjoy your day!! Cheryl

Hi Cheryl, Super cute card - you're right - I've got a couple of little grandsons who would use that rope to tie up poor Hank too. Have a great day, Nancy
