St. Patrick's Day Shamrock and Clover Greeting Card

Wishing all our readers a very Happy St. Patrick's Day. We wish you all (Irish)good luck this St Patrick's day.
Just thought of creating something green this day. I looked into my craft supplies and created this greeting card keeping in mind to keep it simple and easy for kids to make. In the process also learned somethng about St. Patrick's Day. For those who are new to St. Patrick's Day a little bit of history.
According to legend, St. Patrick used the shamrock, a three-leaved plant, to explain the Holy Trinity to the pre-Christian Irish people. The four-leaf clover is often confused with the shamrock. While the four-leaf clover is a symbol of good luck, the three-leafed shamrock is mainly an Irish Christian symbol of the Holy Trinity and has a different significance.
Whether it is 3 leaf Shamrock or 4 leaf clover they indeed are integral part of St. Patrick's Day and are truly represent the day. Green is the color of St. Patrick's Day. May this Day bring lots of luck and happiness to you. It is also a day to count your blessings. Wishing you all health, wealth and happiness.

This is very simple craft. I have used card stock and some foam stickers with and without glitter and basic quilling shapes in different shades of green. Give it a try and give it to someone special.
