Blue Buddleia Bear

I made this card using a Gruffy Bear from a Joanna Sheen set, using lots of blues.  I'm not convinced that the colours quite work...  to many shades of different values.  The colour inspiration came from House Mouse & Friends Monday and I based the layout on Sketch Saturday, with extra flowers and butterflies spilling out.  The lace came from my stash, sentiment is from the same stamp set.
My card is for:
House Mouse & Friends Monday - photo inspiration
Paper Pretties - thank you card
Sweet Stamps - think spring
