To post or to not post

Hi everyone, I am feeling a bit under the weather nowadays, yesterday happened to be a sleeping day, I slept almost the whole day, no energy to sit also.  Today I feel awake and minus the headache, so can look at the screen for some time.
I made a few cards, which I wasn't sure if I wanted to share or not, I am not particularly very happy with these cards, but thought of sharing it anyway. There are some good days and some bad days in my card making, I would let you guys see both ;)

Ok the first one was made really a very long time back. I had embossed the lotus in silver, and colored it using the acrylic paint markers. Stamped few dragonflies and the sentiment is from STAMplorations. I added it to a purple base.

Here is another entry with the sketch and colors

Spotlight Project STAMPlorations
Again with Cornelia's card

The second one is made using pattern paper, and some stamping, smooshing etc.
I used squeezed lemonade for the cake, it is done with smooshing, and then I heat embossed the cake from STAMPlorations in clear embossing powder using a black ink, fuzzy cut it to add to the card.
Then I added the pattern paper to the top of the card, followed by a fabric tape, and a doily die cut.
Added the sentiment from STAMPlorations and finally mounting the cake using some foam adhesives. Finished off with few matching sequins.

Finally the last one, this one is inspired by a picture, I saw online. The colors were beautiful to my eyes and thought of putting together a card using these colors.
I used a brown base, and white front. I first used a wet wipe, which was sitting with plenty of blue water color on it to wipe it, so I got a blue base.
Then I used a purple pigment ink to sponge the panel around, used stamplorations - trendy butterflies, and heat embossed in clear powder using dusty concord distress ink, then I used markers to color the butterflies. The small butterflies are stamped and heat embossed using Hero Arts yellow neon ink. I stenciled some leaves from ARTplorations leaf stencil, using some distress inks. Added a silver twine, and a leaf charm, The sentiment is heat embossed on vellum in black. This card is a love-hate type card, I cannot decide whether I like it or dislike it, and truly not my type of work. I might not be in my right mind while I made
