Do you guys think this is too busy/overwhelming/uninteresting? Played around a little with scale, but maybe I need to do more. Just getting into pattern design...

I really like this pattern and the scale you chose. Although it's for the Child's Play challenge, I also think it would work well in other areas of a home. Really pretty!

I would remove the yellow swirls in the background and consider making a few of the swirls bigger, to add more visual interest.

Hi Karen, this is a really fun pattern for kids but I do agree with Sarah on the yellow swirls, they are a bit distracting . . . maybe try them in a lighter teal or turquoise tone so they blend in a bit more.
