I just LOVE the look of Asian cards. Maybe it's the simplicity of using very few colors when people make Asian cards that I like so much. All images used are from retired Stampin' UP sets that I can't imagine ever parting with. :)

Stamps - Asian Art, Asian Poetry background
Paper - Real Red, Whisper White, Black
Ink - Basic Black

Also used was a Martha Stewart punch for the right edge of the card. I saw this punch and simply had to have it! Nesties were used for the circles, a gold colored Asian coin used in the center circle, and fine detail black embossing powder was used to give the images some texture.

Love the composition of the card, and the calligraphy on the background is upside-down.

Oh goodness, I hadn't noticed that the layer with all those little sqiggles was upside down! Thanks for pointing it out to me whoever you are. :)
