Eye of Beauty Border - line drawing

I've finished the line drawing for this border illustration.  My daughter likes this one - a rare compliment.

If you are wondering how long it takes me to do these....  I drew the sketch in about four or five hours ( two long "Lord of the Rings" movies.)  It took half that time to draw over it with a technical pen. (While watching "Water for Elephants.")  So far this is about a three movie deal - just to finish the line drawing. I suppose I could go a bit faster if I didn't watch DVD's while working - but that would be so much more boring.  This kind of work, while pleasurable, is tedious.

Here you can see the work half done:
