CSS CSS Layout Techniques Display Modes Display Modes Challenge

Am I missing something

First code challenge CSS layouts. Off the bat, add padding to .main-header

I thought it would be

.main-header {
    padding-left : 5px;
    padding-right : 5px;

That doesn't seem to work.

The Hound -

I noticed you are new to Treehouse, if you are also new CSS then you probably take the CSS Foundations before the CSS Layout Techniques course.

you want to add padding to all of .main-header. you are only adding it to left and right.

.main-header {
      padding: 5px;

This will adding padding all around the element
