Style widget search box

Is it possible to style the widget search box? I want to match the box to the background and just have a border.

I wanted the search box in the left sidebar so I used the widget. Edits to the original search box have no effect. Through posts I was able to see how to change the text within the box but not the background and border. Thanks for the help.

I love to design and code drives me crazy...this theme seems to actually be teaching me code...Kudos! And I found the search box styling after much experimentation. I was nervous to touch the css.php file but by changing the percentages one by one I was able to style the box. Resolved.

instead of changing the css.php, you should use a css insert. that way the change is stored in the database and will apply if you upgrade. By editing the code itself, you will have to make the change if you ever upgrade (you are keeping really detailed notes...right?)
