CSS CSS Basics (2014) Enhancing the Design With CSS Text Shadows and Box Shadows

Just like the text-shadow property the box-shadow can take multiple comma-seperated values to add additional shadows to

style.css
/* Complete the challenge by writing CSS below */
.main-heading {
  text-shadow: 0 0 5px #be7b31;
}
.title{
text-shadow: 1px 3px 0 #e59740;
}
.main-header {
  box-shadow: 0 2px 15px #aaa; 
}
.shadow-box {
  box-shadow: 2px 2px 10px crimson, 
              inset 10px 0 10px rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.2); 
}

Seems like your last task implemented something very different from the instructions. For this challenge, you won't add another rule for "shadow-box". Instead, you will add a second set of parameters to the existing "main-header" rule and "box-shadow" property. In the second set, you will use the "inset" and set the "horizontal and vertical offsets to 0, the blur radius to 60px, the spread radius to 5px, and the color to firebrick.":

.main-header {
  box-shadow: 0 2px 15px #aaa, 
              inset 0 0 60px 5px firebrick; 
}

You forgot the firebrick.
