hello ladies, I hope you are having a great day

This weeks AIS prompt was 'your favorite flower', mine has always been a hibiscus. I remember that it was the first flower that I just had to know the name of. Other than them and Wisteria I am not into flowers. Unfortunately I didn't have many hibiscus stamps to chose from :(
I started with two coats of Zoya Savita. I am absolutely in love with the matte velvet trio that I won recently. I should those swatches up Tuesday. I actually took the time to wear and enjoy them instead of just swatching. I then stamped using the only two plates I have with hibiscuses BM313 & 318.
I honestly don't think that I've ever had such a hard time with two images in my entire life. I think between just these four fingers I had to re-stamp about 12 times! And you better believe that after all that trouble I wore these for about four days. Incase you're wondering my thumb matched my index and pinkie fingers.
I like the overall look, and I adore Savita with topcoat, but I don't know that I would use these two images again. I thought about contacting BM to get my defective plates replaced (there seem to be quiet a few with this set) but I've had them for so long I'm not sure how that would go. Plus I'm no expert stamper so maybe its just me. Anybody know any other plates with hibiscuses? I'd love to revisit this look later on with some neons.
What do you ladies think? What are your favorite flowers? As always, thanks for stopping by, and I hope you enjoyed :)
