I have a problem with theming on the sticky notes applet

I've been using it for months! Suggestion for improvement : a slightly thicker white line and lighter background for open and active applications in the taskbar ("Menu" and "1" in the capture).

any plans to add buttons, borders and folder icons to match this awesome theme?

The thing is that it is so neutral it can be combined with any theme :)

Lovely theme, thank you! I found only one issue using the "Windows Quick List" applet: when I open it and click on it again to close it, a small rectangle remains on the screen. I have to click elsewhere to completely dismiss the applet. Keep on the great work. :)
