Depending on what is acceptable you could use a Text & Picture ring to assign each item a color -- this would not appear on the text itself, however. You could also make your ring come out to a case structure that contained a property node and correct properties for each case (i.e. case Yellow sets the background property yellow, etc.). See the example I added to yours.
