Flower Puppy in Basket

I made this basket arrangment out of floral greens and carnations. Next time I will use a larger basket so that I can add some flowers on the side but all in all I think it came out great. My friends daughter has been volunteering a lot of time at the local SPCA so I thought it would be a great gift for her.
