I was just trying to get to the bottom of your build and can't fathom out what makes up your background image. I was going to suggest that you make an image of just the curve, make it left and top positioned with no repeat and then set the background colour to orange.

Bristol boy huh?

so in your body you have
body {
background-color:#D98000;
background-image: url(images/background.gif);
background-repeat: no-repeat;
background-position:top left;
}

and then use this as the curve - oh attachment seems to be missing
well take it from here then

Or (better) use the shorthand version

Code:
body {background:#D98000 url(images/background.gif) no-repeat top left}
