Any ideas on how I would get the pale green and pale yellow for Princess Tiana's dress?

I only have leaf green and reg yellow, and I know these colors will be waaay to bright if used alone.

Here's a pic of her dress

The green looks like a pale mint. I would make the pale yellow by using the tinyest bit of lemon to make a very pastel yellow.

i went to michaels yesterday i found these two colors, butterscotch yellow and juniper green; they worked perfectly

the lemon yellow and mint green was way too bright, even when i used just a tiny bit

i'll post the finished cake later in today

Actually the lemon yellow and mint green work well also..It's all in how much you start with.Very tiny bits...
