    Hi Ruth,

    Yes, that is possible to do. Since I did not find any jotforms that you have created I have created just a simple and quick demonstration, but once you create your jotform we can help you make the required changes so that it looks just the way you want it.

    You can take a look at the jotform I made here http://form.jotformpro.com/form/42724042096956

    You can clone it to your account by following these steps: How to Clone an Existing Form from a URL

    This was a combination of CSS and conditions.

    CSS (How to Inject Custom CSS Codes ):

    input.validate\[Email\,required\] {
    border-color: orange;
    box-shadow: 0 0 5px red;
    input.validate\[required\] {
    border-color: orange;
    box-shadow: 0 0 5px red;


    Do let us know if you have any further questions.

    Best Regards,
