The Comment You're Replying To

I think the technique you describe for making a ring board won't consistently use the same two colors for the outer ring. It will sometimes use some of the inner colors. If you want a board that consistently uses different colors for the outer ring, you can add attachments to the ends of the strips you use for the inner board. These attachments would be in the colors of the outer ring. To make it look seamless, you would have to staple the attachments on in places that go underneath overlapping ribbons.

Quick Markdown Guide

By default, new comments may be entered as Markdown, simple markup syntax designed to be readable and not look like markup. Comments stored as Markdown will be converted to HTML by Parsedown before displaying them. This follows the Github Flavored Markdown Spec with support for Markdown Extra. For a good overview of Markdown in general, check out the Markdown Guide. Here is a quick comparison of some commonly used Markdown with the rendered result:
