Sorry for the really late answer, but I've not managed to get some spare
time to take a closer look at it up until now. I'll focus only on the
notification part (for now). First about your sketch.

What I like:
* Rounded corners, might be even more rounded
* Soft gradients

What I don't like
* Stripe padded
* Usage of not very fitting, IMHO, type of gradient in the stripe
* "Inner outline"
* Close button hardly visible, cursive-like
* Padding too small for text

Now why I waited with the answer so long. I've set up a wiki page for
tracking the progress (both art and coding) of the notification theme
and put my design on that as well. It's based of yours, yet it's
different a lot. 

* I used warmer colours for the basic background, similar to that used
in tooltips
* I rounded the corners more
* I use only one type of gradient, two different settings (one for fill,
another for outline)
* I used close icon (and all other icons) from the icon theme I have
currently set (echo, with fall-back to gnome).

The wiki page (with SVGs and PNGs) is there:

Comparison of the current notify and the sketch, as it looks on whole F9
desktop is there:

The *-orig-* images, save for the screen shot of whole desktop, are real
screen shots, I used notify-send application to display them, all the
rest is either collage or work from scratch. 

Comments welcome,
