I'm performing a flowchart using pstricks . The problem is how to do superimposed Boxes (in gray and light gray ) included in the flow chart like those in the picture below . Is there any specific function to produce that ?

enter image description here

This is what I've done so far


\psovalbox[fillstyle=solid,fillcolor=yellow,shadow=true]{Begin} \\
    \psframebox[shadow=true]{Initialisations} \\
    \psdiabox[fillstyle=solid,fillcolor=Pink,shadow=true]{Special} &
       \psframebox[shadow=true]{1)} & \psframebox[shadow=true]{2)} \\
    \psframebox[shadow=true]{Action 1} \\
    \psframebox[shadow=true]{Action 2} \\
    % Links

Thank You for your help in advance .

To create such a background you must nest three psframe:
