Try Something New Thursday/ Big C

I have always wanted to have one of those big monogram letters on my wall, ever since the days of the Mary Tyler Moore show (boy does that age me) so I decided to make one for my scrapbook room.  The room is a very, very pale pink with hot pink accents.  
Wow, the picture makes it look red, but that really is a hot pink on a pale pink wall, lol!  Do you recognize the wand that Lisa from Indy Mermaids sent me for my birthday?  Isn't she a perfect decoration for my C?  Now I have a question and need some help from you my sweet follower friends...should I do something to the paper part of this decoration to make it last longer? Should I mod-podge it or spray it with a coating of something?  Any suggestions?  Hugs!

"When the trees their summer splendor
Change to raiment red and gold,
When the summer moon turns mellow,
And the nights are getting cold;
When the squirrels hide their acorns,
And the woodchucks disappear;
Then we know that it is autumn,
Loveliest season of the year."
- Carol L. Riser, Autumn
