Hello Melissa,

I was playing around with this challenge and I found something unusual:

If you move your font-size: 100px; to be beneath your gradient, the challenge will pass.

.main-header {
  background-image: linear-gradient(to bottom right, red, yellow); 
  font-size: 100px;

It's a strange bug. I've just now reported it to the support team.

I hope this helped. Good luck with the rest of the challenges!
