It doesn't work that way -- that's a local path to your computer. You need to upload the image to a hosting service like https://imgbb.com/

Click on the preview image once, then it should lead you to a site like https: //ibb.co/{something} where the image appears in full size. Right click on the image and select "Copy Image Link". (Could be different in your browser, but something to that effect.) This will copy a link into your clipboard. Paste that link here, in the [img ] [/ img] tags.

As for the card itself, I'd say it mostly seems like a very weak Shepherd.

Was debating it being + 2 actions. Thinking it is a mid to late game buy, allows you to sift through your deck when you have more expensive victory cards, as a province will give you + 3 cards

Why would you do a weaker version of Shepherd that costs more? And why go down the rabbit hole of playing green (instead of just discarding it)?

Welcome to the forum.  :)
At $4 Illusionist is a decent Shepherd variant giving +1 Card for Estates, +2 Cards for Duchies, and +3 Cards for Provinces, instead of Shepherd's uniform +2 Cards. If you read enough of DXV stuff you may come to understand why he choose a uniform distribution. Other than it is a simpler implementation, more importantly a uniform distribution does not provide an advantage for a player who is already winning.

Blood Moon should state where the Treasure is trashed from - presumably from play, but it could be your Hand or the Supply.

VooDooDoll should also have the Attack type. Such a strong attack should cost more. I'd prefer an out clause, like allowing it to not affect players who discard a Victory card. Many of my Attack cards specify Duchy discard to avoid the attack.

I would change Dark Contract. Here are some options in order of preference: remove the last sentence "Then trash this card"; or reduce the cost; or increase both instances of $1 to $2.

If you plan to print these, i'd make some effort to increase the font size. On Dark Contract the "+1 Buy" and "+$1" could be on the same line. For Elixir, try this instead 

Card types and card names should be capitalized. I also capitalize the noun "Hand", "Discard", and "Deck".  :)
