Explore as many shades of green as you can to colour the shamrock and then explore contrasting colours for the background. I chose pinks and purples, just because i like them!

What is St. Patrick's Day all about?
Every year on March 17, the Irish and the Irish-at-heart across the globe observe St. Patrick’s Day. What began as a religious feast day for the patron saint of Ireland has become an international festival celebrating Irish culture with parades, dancing, special foods and a whole lot of green. See http://www.history.com/topics/st-patricks-day for more information on this event.
