It's a triple with Dean Marks, Svenja Wahl and Diane Keys

Barcodes are human too!  I wholeheartedly agree and love this card, the 3-D parts jump off the page and keep my eyes moving all around it.  I keep picking it up for another go.. Thanks Dean :)))))))))

Two sweet pieces from Janine :))))))

First this romantic man, looks adorable and feels great too!!!
