Yes adding Yellow should make your fondant lime green.

You may have to add some white to it to soften the kelly green.

I'd suggest you take a percentage of the green (eg 5% by weight) and add one drop of lemon at a time until you get the desired shade. Then multiply appropriately this amount for the rest of the fondant.

If the tone is right, but it's too dark, add in small quantities of white fondant until you have the desired shade.
