Circle Circus Inspiration

Who would think that hotel artwork would inspire a card?  When I was in Orlando for the Stampin' Up! Leadership Conference, this artwork was in the hallway in our hotel.  As soon as I saw it, it reminded me of Circle Circus.   I had to make a card as soon as I got home (and then promptly forgot to post it!)
I made this one just relying on memory, which didn't prove to be very good, since I got the colors all wrong.  But that's OK, because inspiration is just that, inspiration.  It's a jumping off point to creativity, not something that needs to be replicated exactly.  But it is kind of bugging me that the colors aren't the same, so I may have to try again. :)
