Background Challenge

Challenge task 1 of 1 We have an image file, 'smiley.png', located in the 'img' folder. Add it as an image above the texture background. Set it so that it doesn't repeat, and position it in the top-right corner of the div. Then, add 'img/pencil.png' above the smiley image layer. Set it so that it doesn't repeat, and position it in the bottom-left corner.

My Answer:

.sketch { background: url('img/smiley.png') no-repeat top right, url('img/pencil.png') no-repeat bottom left, url('img/texture.jpg') #EED293; }

I can't understand why it's wrong! Bummer! Check the background image values in your CSS.

Please help.

This works 100% so try pencil before smiley and then texture!

.sketch {
     background: 
       url('img/pencil.png') no-repeat left bottom,
       url('img/smiley.png') no-repeat right top,
       url('img/texture.jpg') #EED293;
 }

Yann, Thank you for your answer. But I think there is something wrong with the challenge. Because I got the same error message "Bummer! Check the background image values in your CSS." After apply your suggestion.

Now who from the Treehouse will fix it ?
