    Create the clover on a separate layer then animate a matte to reveal it.

    Your journey starts here:

    And by all means, work on the type design. Being new to AE is the least of your worries....

    Just search around for a logo or text reveal tutorial.  Here's one of the first ones that popped up on YouTube.  It looks like it would accomplish what you're after:

    You could also use a mask stroke to create the stabbing effect with the stem.  Or you could use closed masks over the stem and clover and animate several mask paths to reveal the entire clover.  Here's how it looks only you probably have your comp set up with seperate layers so you can keep your masks set to add instead of subtract and the masks will be animated in the opposite direction:

    Yes you can animate that with masks.  There are loads of other tutorials for logo animation out there so just search around and find a technique that you like.  Here's another one you might find helpful:
