Code Challenge

I've been stuck on this challenge for hours now, and have read other forums but still can't figure it out. The question goes as follows:

Add the background texture.png from inside the img folder and set the background to repeat

Here's what I have:

/* Write your CSS below */
    color: #FAF3BC;
    background: #420600; url('img/texture.png') repeat;

The hint i'm being given is "Make sure you put the relative path to the image inside of 'url()'

Hi Cynthia,

try getting rid of the semi-colon after the #420600.


is your property (short-hand property, in this case) and

#420600 url("img/texture.png")  repeat;

is the associated value. where your syntax should be:

selector {

Hi Gary Mann, I removed the semi-colon after "420600" and that was it!!!! THANK YOU!!!!
