Spacing utilities not working

I am using the newest way (mb-2 instead of m-b-2), but I am not seeing spacing on my <h3> or <img> elements. I did see spacing happen on the container div.

All H elements have a default of margin bottom .5rem that is equal to mb-2.

So if your try mb-3, mb-4 or mb-5 to the H element it will add margin bottom to it.

Try mb-2 for the image because you have it set to mb-1.
