Now to finish your snow globe, goto the sphere settings again and move the slider all the way to the left and press Sphere, this will remove all the snow outside the circle. As an extra you can make the scene more brighter or add a little more contrast by pressing the Brightness and/or Contrast button before pressing Sphere.
