First, here is my card using the new Fizzy Moon Snow (you can get it in Crafty Emma's Store here)...

 
 

Fabulous blog mate Sally of Scallywags fame has got me addicted to this little fella!!  He was such a pleasure to colour in, here's a close up so you can see the touches of Glamour Dust that I added to the snow and the embossed snowflakes that Crafty Emma sells here.
