Guest Artist: Zrinka Berić (I Love Math Challenge #2)

Hi everyone! :o)

I hope you're all doing great! There are still more than two weeks to join a second I Love Math Challenge. :o)

I am very honored to host very talented Guest Artist today, Zrinka Berić.

Zrinka is an amazing artist from Croatia, an owner of Owls and Co.

With her family, she also owns Toporko, wooden toys like no others. :o)

I love Zrinka's creations. Fun cards, gorgeous handmade dolls and animals, baby stuff, wooden toys... This girl rocks!!! :o)
I have a great pleasure to be in the same Design Team as Zrinka at Jane's Doodles. I was so happy when Zrinka accepted my invitation to be a guest in the challenge and super excited to see what will she create. :o)

Here is what Zrinka said:
"I’m not a math person. At all. Still using my phone for even simple operation like dividing two numbers. Silly, I know. 
So when Milka asked me to joined her math challenge, I meant, please let it be simple.
And it was.. Number 2. How can it be difficult.
My card is as simple, as can be.
Two balloons, in two primary colours ( by Clearly Besotted ) on round panel. Happiness sentiment ( by Technique Tuesday ) on dotted paper ( by the Stamps of life ). All other papers ( white, yellow and dark blue ) are from my stash, I do not know where are they from. I used Color Box/Stephanie Barnard ink pads ( Banana & Blueberry & Midnight ). Die cuts are from Sizzix  - everything except circle, it’s from the stamps of life."

And here is ADORABLE Zrinka's card! I LOVE IT!!! :o)

When Zrinka sent me photo of the card I screamed: Wohooo balloons!!! I love balloons!! Air, water or hot-air balloons... Balloons are awesome!!! :o)

Lot of layers and dimension, with a lot of white space and minimum of color make this super sweet card brilliant CAS design. I love her take on the challenge! Two balloons stamped in two primary colors, two different stamp sets, double layers. She also used different geometric shapes on her card and used sentiment in an equation form. BRILLIANT!! :o)

Thank you so much Zrinka for joining the challenge and for the inspiration! :o)

Now it's your turn...
