"Over the top" embellishing ladies shirt...

I know this shirt to some will seem very obnoxious, but I love it.
I started out by making three ruffles with this small check material.
Then I sewed them on by layering them on top of each other a little bit.
After I was finished with the  ruffles I attached an old purple necklace to the sides of the ruffle.  I used the extra strong thread to keep it in place.
I hid it under the ruffle.  I wash all of my handmade clothes on the hand wash cycle so that things like this won't get ruined.
Then I attached a fabric rose I had lying around and some more of my grandma's clip on earrings.
A little "over the top"?  Yes, but so am I sometimes :).
