Nice layout and a marvellous 'first real try'.
All I would say (in addition to what has been said) is to move your
background image from the wrapper and put it in the header. That way,
when anyone resizes the text significantly, the background remains
throughout the height of the header - whereas now it stops and the text
goes down below it.
