It is very difficult to find shades of blue in roses, but these are perfect. They look so realistic and there are enough shades that you could probably match or complement any shade of blue cardstock. I can't wait to put them into use, but then I won't be able to look at them in their pretty glass jar. Does that mean I might be buying more? Probably, even though I have hundreds of flowers of every kind, shade, and texture. I'm hooked on Prima's flowers!
