Color Q Circles

I am getting a lot of crafting in today. This is my second post.
Playing again with Colour Q bold colors challenge.

One or 2 colors is easy for me but putting this many together is a real challenge. So thank you Color Q for forcing me to stretch.
When looking for inspiration, I found some circles in the right colors that I had scrapped from trying another project. I used a circle punch to cut out the centers to make open circles, split 2 of them to intertwine and glued them to the white cardstock. Okay, 3 colors down, now how am I going to incorporate that So Saffron? Thinking I needed something to anchor the circles, I decided on a butterfly. I stamped one from Butterfly Prints in VersaMark and used clear embossing powder. Then used a dimensional to pop it up. The Happy Birthday is SU but I put all my happy birthdays together and can't remember which set this one is from.
Since Tuesday Throwdown theme this week is Birthday Party, I will post this card there also.
