Quick and easy birthday cards using Pantone's CORAL

Hi everyone! I have a fun birthday card trio to share. They were all inspired by the ribbons from the Pantone Color of the Year sampler -Living Coral!
I LOVE THIS COLOR and want to extend my greatest thanks to Pantone for nailing it this year!!
This is my go-to layout for quick, easy and pretty cards. Just gather some patterned paper and ribbon scraps and a versatile Sentiment stamp set and you're ready to go! And this is the time of year to stock up for 2019.
Trim your patterned paper 3.75" x 2.25" then die cut (or punch if you have a border punch) a border and trim sentiment panel to 4.25" x 3" and assemble!
The ribbon sampler is in 1 yard increments, so if you want to make it stretch, just tape both ends at the back of the panel instead of wrapping and you can make several cards with just the 1 yard.
The sentiment is from the set, Farmhouse All Occasion Greetings. There are so many great sentiments in this set, with it you could make a year of cards!
The patterned paper is from 2 different Kaisercraft packs, both have great patterns that coordinate with coral. The Ooh La La pack has more of a elegant feel and the Spring Bloom pack has more of a fun bright happy feel. And I love that the ribbon sampler has ribbons that fit both. The flowers are from Petaloo the Botanica mini packs in Coral and White. I'm in love with these flowers, I want some in EVERY color (p.s. there are 18!!)

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!
