Hi there Jesus Borjas! You're doing terrific and your CSS is spot on. Now, I'm not sure how this happened exactly but somehow the comment at the top has an extraneous \ at the end, which is causing an error and the CSS is not being parsed correctly.

The comment at the top started off as:

/* Complete the challenge by writing CSS below */

But it's now:

/* Complete the challenge by writing CSS below */\

Erasing the \ from the end of that comment causes this to pass the challenge! :tada:

Hope this helps! :sparkles:
