    You can change the background color of the element that holds the submit button by finding this CSS code line in your Form Designer Tool:

    li[data-type=control_button] {

        background : rgb(250, 10, 0);

        overflow : hidden;

        padding-top : 10px;

        padding-bottom : 10px;



    You can change the value in the "background" attribute. Here's a demo on how I changed the color:


    You can use this tool to get the RGB color values: http://www.w3schools.com/colors/colors_rgb.asp 

    I hope that helps.
