Blue roses filled with love - Happy Birthday Dad

You may have seen these two A5 top folding birthday cards,
His & Hers Roses HERE.

This post is to focus on the blue rose I made for my Father's birthday.

Yes, I know there is no such a thing as a blue rose.

The "blue rose" is something that rose growers all over the world dream of
and are trying to grow.  My Father really loves his roses, so I have made
one-of-a-kind blue rose from my beloved, one-of-a-kind Dad.

The inside of the card is matted and finished off with a die cut sentiment.

the sentiment on the card front is Papyrus
