This is a really neat design. It might be interesting if you added a little extra color to some of the dots, keeping it monochromatic but adding just a little bit of variety might be nice. Also I think if you spread out the dots a little horizontally and filled in some of the white space it might look nice. Just some thoughts.

Hi Paula! Beautiful dotes. As an option I can offer to make the dots in different shades of tender blue. I think that monochromic approach could work well here. It would be great if the dots in the central element wouldn't be placed so tight. I think that adding more air to your design will help a lot.

I love it the way it is! I can see many different color ways with the design. Reminds me of rain in a calming way.

I think it looks great! I like the suggestions for changing some of the dots to other shades of blue. I also think you could scale it down a bit more. If you print out a test square at full size you can get a better idea of the scale.

This is a lovely, soothing pattern - it has the wonderful element of being appropriate for kids but sophisticated enough to satisfy adult taste. I agree that an ombre touch could be lovely, but it is also very nice the way it is.
