Remember that with any margin value, you will need to specify the unit type at all times unless it's 0. You'll want to use the px unit type on your left and right margin values. That should fix your issue.

Justin is right, you're just missing the px on the left and right.

And, if you want, the shorthand answer would be

margin: 0 10px;

First value does top and bottom. Second value does left and right.

Thanks all !
