Icons won't display next to file links

I'm fairly certain I typed the "begins with" and "ends with" rules correctly in my css, but when I refresh the website only the pdf icon appears next to the pdf link- the other two icons do not appear next to their respective links and I don't know why. Here is my CSS:

a[href^="http:"] { color: #52bab3; text-decoration: none; background-repeat: no-repeat; background-size: 18px 18px; padding-left: 25px; }

a[href$=".pdf"] { background-image: url('../img/icn-pdf.svg'); }

a[href$=".jpg"] { background-image: url('..img/icn-picture.svg'); }

a[href$=".zip"] { background-image: url('..img/icn-zip.svg'); }

You forgot to put a forward slash before the jpg and zip directory. You put "..img/icn-picture.svg", what you're supposed to have is "../img/icn-picture.svg" like your first one.
