Please someone help

This is driving me insane. I am on the final challenge of Sass. I have to "Use the mixin we just wrote to create a series of classes for the colors: red, orange, yellow, and green."

This is the code I have which as far as I can see should work but for some reason it wont.

I keep getting the error "Bummer! The div with the class .red should have a red background. Did you use red as a parameter when including the rainbow mixin?"

@mixin square ($size, $color: black) {
    height: $size;
  width: $size;
  border: 1px solid $color;

@mixin rainbow($colors...) {
  @each $color in $colors {
    .color.#{$color} {
      background: $color; }

@include rainbow(red, orange, yellow, green);
.box {
    @include square($color: red, $size: 10px);

You class names are compiling to .color.red, .color.orange etc. I think they should come out as .red, .orange, check your mixin.

THATS IT!!!! Thank you!
