what to plant over bulbs?

Chippewa Lake, OH(Zone 5b)

I've been puzzling over this for a month now, and decided I should open the question to the experts-you all. I mostly have perennials at this point, bul I planted two new bulb beds in front of my foundation plantings.

I can't figure out what annuals to plant over the bulbs! My foundation plantings are blue, violet and white tones, and I'd like to stay with that. Need annuals that aren't huge, can tolerate sun and some afternoon shade. Aaargh. All I can come up with are impatiens but I know there must be something more creative than that.

ANY ideas, suggestions welcome. Obviously I was overcome w/ bulb lust last fall and did not think this through. :(
