Style Me Pretty Feature with Spark and Wildflower!


A few months ago, Mattie of Spark and Wildflower contacted me about a project she’s working on – a DIY Pallet Escort Card Display for a Style Me Pretty feature! I was more than happy to be a part of this fun collaboration!

I sourced raw-edged ivory cards from IrishBrigid on Etsy which were perfect for the charming, rustic style. The cards were lettered by me in a fun casual script in Sumi ink.


Mattie did such a wonderful job! I loved seeing my calligraphy as part of this great DIY project and would love to collaborate with stylists, planners or photographers!
