Peacock colors

I wanted to use my JustRite "Smile" stamps - only to discover that the wooden stamper has gone AWOL, along with my favorite sentiment from the set.  I experimented with using an acrylic block - the result is that only the outer rim of the border made an impression, but I think I managed to make it work.  I used Spica pens to color the border, and added some sparkly jewels to add to the jewel tone/peacock look.
The DP is K&Company, and I have dark blue bg cs.
Peacock/jewel colors:
Any, with an encouraging sentiment:

This is really pretty, Dorothy. I'm super excited to see that you've come back again to play along with us and to share your beautiful art with us. What a treat to have you come back and share with us again.
Hope you're having a great week.

Dorothy, I see why you wanted to use that stamp. What wisdom, and what refreshing would people obtain if only they followed the advice or invitation on your very outstanding piece of art. I want to say merci beaucoup for linking with us. I hope many people see this, for their day will turn around, even if it's already a good day.
