.main-header: {box-shadow: 0px 2px 15px #aaa, inset 0px 0px 60px 5px firebrick; }

YES! Reversing the order turned the trick! THANKS!!!!!

Hi Donald,

Can you post your CSS code?

Here is what I have tried repeatedly!

.main-header: {box-shadow: inset 0px 0px 60px 5px firebrick, 0px 2px 15px #aaa; }

So close!

You're almost there! Try switching the order for the box shadow properties, for example:

.main-header { box-shadow: __ __ __ #aaa, inset __ __ __ __ firebrick; }

Let me know how it goes.
