Close, but not quite what I was thinking. The version you created
goes below this bottom of the first +, which as you said makes it
less compact.

Take that bottom C part and puch it up one "block", making sure you
keep the + sign on top of the background. In essence, you'd really
just be adding a single block of background in the lower left gap of
the first +, and another block to the lower right gap of the first +,
if that makes any sense.
