- Just one piece of cardstock
- Just one patterned paper
- Just one word in the title/sentiment
- Just one photograph/image
- Just one embellishment
Now it's your turn. With such a simple recipe, you should be able to cook something up in no time at all!
Link up your newly created project by midnight EST, Monday 3rd January, for your chance to go into the December prize draw. We'll be taking a break for the holidays next week, so you get an extra week to work your magic ;)

Well here it is, folks - the final color challenge of the year! I know some of you will be afraid of it, but you have TWO WEEKS to complete our challenges for this round, and we will kick things off with our winners, our new Dollies, and our new challenges, starting January 3rd. SO, these next two weeks, while probably busy due to the holidays, should allow you PLENTY of time to make your final Design Dollies challenge submissions FANTABULATIOUS! And we're excited to see 'em!
This round is brought to you by the colors:
TAN, CHOCOLATE, ROYAL BLUE and ORANGE
(remember, these must be the PREDOMINANT colors in your project, not merely making an appearance!)
Scared? Don't be! 'Cuz check out the Dollies' projects and prepare to be inspirated! ;)
Metal_Minish rocked it with his signature splatter, and I just LOVE how he placed the loose petals!
Chiqui wowed me with this beautiful travel-themed page - I think her framing of the photos is PERFECT, and I love all the wonderful contrast!
I, Leah the Orange, offer you this simple window card - slightly less than traditional holiday colors, but you can make it work, too!
Link up your NEWLY-CREATED projects below (please bear in mind that we're back to text-only links, so add the URL to the post which features your project, rather than just to your blog) by Sunday, January 2nd at midnight EST for your chance to win the BIGGEST color challenge prize of the year! Yep, I know this one's a bit tougher, but I promise it will be worth your while!

Now that the excitement has wrapped up (at least the first part of it), we're ready for a new week of challenges in the Dollhouse! We had just two FANTASTIC entries for last week's color challenge, and Meital and Sherri, your creations were, indeed, gorgeous and inspiring! Thank you for being the brave ones!
This week, our DOLLIES had a hard time wrapping their heads around the combo, but they sure pulled a rabbit out of a hat with their stunning projects!
Let's see these colors.....
BLACK, YELLOW and SILVER
And if you're already scratching your heads over that one, just take a look and see how it's done!
Penny made these hot little tags - the element of glitter is TOTALLY fab!
I, Leah, couldn't resist the black flocked trim, and made a birthday card... too bad you can't see the sparkly letters! (My camera's been on the fritz for a while - UGH!)
and Nicole was also inspired to make a birthday card - I just LOVE the huge HAPPY sentiment and that adorable little chicken!
Now that wasn't so bad, was it? We know you can do this! Bust out your Ambrosia papers from BasicGrey, or the My Mind's Eye HOME line, and you're BOUND to find something that will work for you!
Play along by next SUNDAY, December 19th at midnight EST for your chance to win the next yummy prize pack! Did I mention I went to a RANGER Warehouse sale a little while ago? And that I bought a TON of stuff? Well let's just say there will be some Ranger goodness in this box for one lucky winner, plus a few other goodies. :)
Happy crafting, and have a great week, dear friends! xo

Wendi submitted a gorgeous project for our Black, White, Royal Blue and Pale Aqua challenge... check this out!
See what I mean? :)
I'd love to send a happy little prize pack out to you, so Wendi, if you'd kindly send me your mailing addres in an email at DesignDollies@gmail.com and add a little "November winner" subject, that would be most excellent!
Our Dollie-Call officially ends in 4 1/2 hours! HURRY before it's GONE again for another six months! :D

A very warm Dollhouse welcome to JENNIFER SHAW! She has been waiting patiently for her chance to play with us, and we are THRILLED to have her. She's participated in many Dollies challenges since our blog's inception, and she always gives us something inspiring and lovely! Today is certainly no exception!
The following colors must be the PREDOMINANT colors in your projects... Please remember that you may use other accents, but I should see these right away (and not find a tiny little detail that matches)...
CELERY GREEN, SKY BLUE, RED and WHITE
(if you do it right, you don't NEED any other colors!)
Don't you love the little stitched accents between the scallops?
And here's what our fabby Dana did with these colors - scratch what
I said about making you forget about the winter chill!
I had some lofty goals and had hoped to complete a card for this challenge because I had JUST the paper, but the craft fair prevented me from doing much - HOPEFULLY I can add a little something in the next day or two. :)
Play along with us in the Dollhouse! Link up your NEWLY-CREATED PROJECT by next Sunday, December 12th at midnight EST, and you could win a yummy prize pack including some stickly goodness and some other surprises. Don't forget to link back to us in your blog post in order to be eligible. I may even get around to posting a photo of this one! ;)
AND don't forget our DOLLIE CALL! If you're interested in joining our Design Team for the next six-month term, CLICK HERE for details! We're waiting to hear from you!
