1st Wedding Anniversary card

hello everyone
apologies for being missing in action again. have been rather low lately but am determined to battle through this.

Here is today's card. this was a requested card for a brother and sister in law.
I made the very popular landscape card.The theme of their wedding was black and silver.

I printed their names and the date requested was for their wedding date - not their anniversary date. Now to me this is wrong - I might be wrong myself - but to me if its an anniversary card - it should be the year of your anniversary not your wedding year. If that makes sense? What do you think? Anyway I was asked to change it as I put 2013 on for this year and was asked to change it to 2012.

So I punched the butterflies and leaves and butterfly out of black cardstock. I also cut a silver butterfly. 

These are the flowers and leaves. I added large diamates for the centres of the flowers for extra sparkle.

I would appreciate any comments or suggestions as always and your thoughts on the date I was asked to put on. Am I right or are they right? 

NOTE - having read some of the comments on here and on my Docrafts page - I guess there is no right and wrong way - customer is always right!

Am off now to catch up on all my fellow bloggers, friends and followers. 
hugs to you all
