Found it back in the archives (MageFedoraTheme)
this one gives a nice impression on what i thought at that time would
look nice for notification balloons.

But NOW.. no. that's not really what i would like to see now in
fedora.. now i would go for smaller color changes and probably less
rounded (rounded but just a few pixels).. i can do it so much better

stay tuned for updates on this with the taskbar + the tooltips
