Answer: Change this background-size; 20px 20px; to this background-size: 20px 20px;

See codePen here: http://codepen.io/anon/pen/XdGejN

Also, when you paste code here you only need to include ```html at the top and 3 back ticks (without the language) at the bottom

EDIT: I see you've edited it already :-)

Thank you - worked :)
