St Patrick's Card

Only a few days to St Patrick's. My son is off school for the whole week, believe it or not! [Sigh] Seriously, I got the wrong profession ;-)  Two years ago we went into town to see the St Patrick's Parade but we only got to see a bit of it - between crowds of people, a tired child and the cold weather we called it a day 1 hour later. This year, with a 3 month old baby I don't think we will be going.
Anyhow, here's a quick card I made to mark the occasion. Not that I will be sending it to anyone, to be honest, but it has to be done, right? The card is my usual CAS style, just the way I like it ;-) The digital sentiment is from Meljen's Designs and the image from WMS, coloured with Letraset Promarkers.
There are many related challenges at the moment and my card enters only a few:

DYSU - Just green it!
Sassy Studio - Green
CES Challenge - St Patrick/ good luck
