Hi there! These challenges are cumulative. In task one, you are asked to change the top bar to have a border of 65 pixels solid and of color #4D7094, and you clearly did that just fine because you made it to step 2. In step 2, you are supposed to edit the font color of the body to #066, which you did. But you also changed the border color of the top bar from Step 1. This was not asked for and now the code from the first step doesn't match what it should.

Unless these challenges explicitly ask you to change code from the previous task, you shouldn't. It will most often cause them to fail.

Hope this helps! :sparkles:
