The example that I found of a ClearBlue sytle.css is not extensive. However the color attribute in the .storybox class looks like a possibility.
In your footer.thtml, you might try inline styles. For example, in the cell tag that contains text, add the attribute
I notice there is a class="footerbox" attribute in that tag. Maybe better than inline styles, to define .footerbox in style.css:
