"Cuppa" tea time in Vienna

This layout was completed for a lift challenge at Soul Scrappers.  My layout is a photo of me taken on my birthday having a 'cuppa' and lunch at The Natural History Museum in Vienna.
It was the coldest day we experienced whilst on our Trafalgar Tour, the coach had dropped us at the Marie Therese Christmas markets - but it was so freezing cold and seeing the Museum my sister and I both said "there must be a café in there - let's head that way out of the cold".  Well, it was a great find, beautiful food, magnificent building, and the most impressive dome.  We did a quick walk around the museum, found the café and sat there until the coach was to return to pick us up. 
The challenge was to be inspired by this layout above  "You Love a Cuppa" by Heather McMahon. I hope I have done your layout justice Heather.
I have used some long time sitting in my stash items on my layout - the beads, bead star and tatting remnant. I did use acrylic paint (a mixture of Sienna and yellow) on my chicken wire chipboard but found it did not stand out as much as I wanted, so when it was dry I sponged on gold stamp pad ink.
Thanks for looking and find time to have a 'cuppa' this week.
