I buy most of my cardstock from PTI and a teeny amount from SU (I get PTI cheaper and I'm happy with their colors). My ribbon comes from PTI and the local craft stores (Michaels, ac moore, etc.). I buy pattern paper from everyone.

What helps me is having a swatch book of my cardstock colors. If I see a ribbon in the craft store that I like, I pull out my swatches and see if it coordinates with anything I have. You can do that with pattern paper but I usually don't. I haven't really had any issues with matching pattern paper to my cardstock so far. My coordinating problem has always been with ribbon but having the swatch book has stopped that problem.
