Today's set is another in a series of MFP oriental stamp sets, Wealthy Fish.  My technique from the Technique Junkies Newsletter CD Move It is called a Side Step Rocker Card.  Again, I had also seen a similar tutorial for this type of card on Splitcoaststampers as well.  The card base on my card is a 7 1/2" circle.


My second card is pretty simple -- just the bamboo and the sentiment.


I hope you have enjoyed all my different techniques this week.  Be sure to check out the rest of the DT members' blogs for more inspiration.  Commenting on them will give you a chance to win a free stamp set. Here's the Design Team:
