I copied this technique from someone's blog. Her photo even has a watermark but try as I might I cannot make out the full name. As soon as I find the original I will post a link here. Or if you recognize this technique post a comment and let me know.

This flower is made using the SU 5 petal punch. I punched several flowers out of baja breeze, sponged some baja breeze ink on some of the flowers, and then cut the petals apart on all of them except 1. That complete flower becomes the center and the other petals are attached in between the petals. I used glue dots to attach the petals. The center is the largest flower from the boho blossoms punch and a filligree brad is in the center. The leaves were hand cut out of folded crimped paper. Once you start the layering process it goes rather quickly!! The last layer is a little tricky and you can "lose your place" so take your time and look at the flower from the front as well as the back. The sentiment was a rub-on.
