CSS CSS Foundations Backgrounds and Borders Advanced Backgrounds

Cant seem to figure out what i did wrong.

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.

Same goes for the second bg url;

top right instead of top-right

Try taking out the dash between bottom and left. As I recall they're separate keywords in the shoorthand background CSS Rule.

So...

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

unfortunately this still is not working, and im stuck :/

Did you take out the dash in top-right declaration as well? :-) Maybe post us the code as it currently is so we can help. :-)

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