Hi Arlene, You're really close, but instead of declaring .main-header twice, the challenge is just asking for a second box-shadow to be added. You do this with one declaration and the two sets of values separated by a comma.

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

If you're still having problems, or don't quite understand, you could go back and watch the first video (Text-shadows). Guil explains using multiple shadows in that video.

Hope that helps. Jason :)
