Have faith there is nothing wrong with your code. I went back through and found out that the challenge won't accept "#000000" as the font color, because it asks for a color of "your choosing" and "#000000" is the initial color value for text. Happy Coding!


Thanks, was pulling my hair out with it passed that now :)
