URL can passed to the blob only when its access modifier is set to public
Example : Embed a html link or image :
<a href="https://myaccount.blob.core.windows.net/pdf/mypdf12.pdf">Press Enter</a>

note :
Blob are private container by default so,change the container permissions during its creation so as to make it public .

Follow the code :

var blobStruser = storageAccount.CreateCloudBlobClient();
var container = blobStruser.GetContainerReference("pdf");
container.CreateIfNotExist();
var permission = container.GetPermissions();
permission.PublicAccess = BlobContainerPublicAccessType.Container;
container.SetPermissions(permission);

Hope it helped!
