Hi there! You're very close but there are two things going on here. First, you're including the 0% as the first stop which is the default and the challenge doesn't like it. At that point, you will get a Bummer message about including the 0%. But the biggest problem here lies in the interpretation of the instructions. The instructions ask you to create a gradient that goes from the bottom to the top. Your gradient should start off with to top.

Once I fix these two minor things, your code passes the final step.

Hope this helps! :sparkles:

Hi, You're doing great just a few comments and fixes.

  1. The direction of the gradient is determined using either: 'to' + 'direction keyword', <degrees>. here you simply forgot the 'to' keyword.
background-image: linear-gradient(to top/bottom/left/right, color-stop 1, color-stop 2)

for the first color you do not need to specify a color stop since it's the color the gradient begins with.

Happy Coding
