A first yellow card is shown by the referee to the player guilty of an infringement. If the same player warrants a second yellow card later on in the game, the referee will show the second yellow card, and will then immediately show a red card and send the player off the pitch.

What color is the card when a rule has been broken in soccer?

Depends on the severity of the rule broken or action of the player. Yellow cards are given for slightly dirty tackles or something not too violent. Red cards are given for very dirty tackles or telling off the ref, fighting, or upon receiving two yellow cards. Not the best answer but gives you an idea. (yellow is less severe then red. Red leads to the player being ejected from the game.)
