hello Ivory. your code its actually fine. but in the challenge is only asking you to create the function. i guess it needs to be empty.

Next, add a background-image property and define a linear gradient function as the value.

  background-image: linear-gradient();

i hope this helps

Hi Anthony, It's still broke, I'll move on and solve it later. Your feedback helps me to know, I"m on the right path Thanks!

i just did the challenges and it worked fine for me. try removing the border-radius

hi anthony, I removed the border-radius and it worked Thank you!
