Windows 7: My Perfect Theme...

My Perfect Theme...

I've been trying to create my perfect theme but can't do it. I keep running into problems so I thought I'd ask the GFX Team here for help. I want this theme but with the attached font on everything and the open, minimize, close buttons from this theme. I need hyperlinks to be done in a lighter blue because as they are, they are really hard to read.
But the main problem I have with most dark themes is a lot of web forms are unreadable -web-form.png
This would be great if someone was up to having a go at making it. I think a lot of people would love this theme not just me.

UPDATE: Thanks to my good friend TheBull, I now have the perfect theme and I learned a few tricks at the same time.

As I was the original artist for this theme and I have all the resources for it, you could have asked for my help and I would have made the changes for you.

I see now that yes, Pierre has given you credit for the original CarbonAlloyV2 theme. I'm registered on your site and appreciate the offer. I'll definitely keep you in mind in the future. Thanks Mark.

The only gadgets I have are the Everest gadget and Sysinfo gadget. The clock and weather are just Google desktop. The dock at the bottom is Object Dock.
