and main.css a { text-decoration: none; }

wrapper {

max-width: 940px; margin: 0 auto; padding: 0 5%;



text-align: center; margin: 0; }

a{ color: #6ab47b; }

header{ background:6bab47b; border-color: #599a68;


you need a "#" before the background color on your header:

header{ background: #6bab47; border-color: #599a68;}

Also, your id's need a # before them in your css.

#wrapper {
  max-width: 940px; 
  margin: 0 auto; 
  padding: 0 5%;

#logo {
  text-align: center; 
  margin: 0;
