Hi Leon,

You almost have it. Just need to combine the two box shadows so:

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

becomes:

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

Hope that helps.

@ Rich

I'm new to these forums (day 1), but how did you use a Quote him and use code view?

Hi Thas,

Welcome to Treehouse :)

I used 3 backticks (```) on the line before and after the code.

This How-to Guide should hopefully help explain a little better.

No problem :)
