Standard HTML / CSS page formatted for wordpress blog

I created a webpage in Standard HTML and CSS and everything looks / works exactly how I want it too. Now I need it to appear as it is on a wordpress site (http://www.texasenergyessentials.com/). I already created a template page and can see it in the template select in the wordpress "add new page" window. I was hoping I could just select the template and leave the text editor blank but that doesn't seem to be the case. All I get is a completely un-formatted page that says welcome guest.

What is the easiest way to get https://gist.github.com/anonymous/8545681 to work on the aforementioned wordpress site? ?

Thanks!

P.S. Please don't link any codex files on loops or templates I just spent 2 hours digging around in them :(

Can you link to the page that uses this template?

The one thing I see offhand is that you will need to use some WordPress php to properly link to any images you are using for the theme itself.

Turned out the page(template) I was tying to implement was going into a child theme, Apparently all the rules are different with child themes. Rules I don't care to learn. So I just hosted it elsewhere.
