Styling 'Contact form 7' Contact form for Wordpress

The 'Contact Form 7' is really an awesome plugin for Wordpress for adding contact form to our wordpress blog and getting mail to our inbox instantly.
I guess maximum number of users might be using it in their blog. I thought of making the contact form more stylish and colorful using the CSS3. Styling the contact form is no way difficult. You just need to add the code you get here in the bottom of the css code of Contact Form 7.
looks confusing ??
  1. Go to Plugins
  2. Click Edit in Contact Form 7
  3. Click on contact-form-7/styles.css in Plugin Files list (which is at the right sidebar)
Now add the additional code in the bottom of the codes. You can see some sample contact forms and its code below the image preview
