I'm afraid Apple won't let you to change the colour of the send button even if you have a jailbroken iPhone. Well, maybe there were some tricks about this :) If you found that, share it please.

Is your iPhone jailbroken one? If yes, you will easily do so once you connect your device to the computer. "Apple doesn't allow you to change your SMS T bubbles unless you jailbreak your device. So the following methods are only available for jailbroken iPhones."
