I flipped the sketch onto its side and came up with this card:
I should point out that when I made this card, I was sick with a nasty cold. Why is it that a simple thing like a cold can make us so miserable and woolly-headed?
I started by cutting a frame using two rounded square dies. I then stamped and cut the "happy" word using my new Game Tile Letters set. I used more NBUS in the form of MFT's Pop Up Birthday die for the rest of the sentiment. I cut along the bottom so they weren't "pop up" anymore. The game controller started out with a white piece of card that I sponged with Slate ink to make a grey color. That way the circles and '+' stand out more.
This isn't my favorite card but considering how I was feeling, I'm not going to complain :)
I'm entering this into this week's challenge at The Paper Players, to make a CAS card with a frame.
