Compass Challenge

The challenge states: use a mixin to give body a linear-gradient background. Make the start color #3d69b5 and the end color #1a335e. My code is:

body { @include background(linear-gradient(#3d69b5, #1a335e)); }

I'm getting the following message: Bummer! Invalid CSS after "body ": expected selector or at-rule, was "{"

Any ideas?

Hi Marcel,

That seems to be working for me.

Maybe refresh the challenge and try again.

Thanks Jason! I tried it again, and it worked when I went through the whole challenge again from the beginning.
