Hi Arthur,

You are setting a linear-gradient on the background property. Try changing that declaration to background-image with the same values, and make sure that the background-image declaration comes last after any/all other background declarations.

background: #c053db;
background-image: linear-gradient(45deg, #ffffff 0%,#c053db 60%,#000000 100%);
