Hi there, Micheal Jones ! I received your request for assistance. You're doing fine. But here you have both to top and to bottom. It can only go one direction* :smiley: This one should use to top because it's going from the bottom to the top. However, the direction must be written in the parentheses first.

So in the parentheses, we're looking for:

(to top, steelblue, darkslateblue 90%)

Hope this helps! :sparkles:
