The steps to Layered Flowers are:
  1. Stamp base image in one color and outline in another (if applicable to stamp selected).  Repeat on another piece of cardstock.
  2. Trim first image around all outer images.  Trim second image, cutting out portions of the flower (to create the layered effect).
  3. Curl ends of petals on second image and adhere on top of first image.  Layer mixtures of stamped accent and embellishments to finish.
Here you can see a visual demonstration of this technique.
I doubled my fun and made a second card. Hope you enjoy looking as I had making it.
