Thanks lain for your help , i finally got the solution , it was in the same line which you talked about , which is background , the value should be $color only instead of the mentioned above .

background: $color;

Thanks for your help , i really appreciate it.

I have a feeling it has to do with the fact that in your rainbow mixin you're using the value of $color as the image filename, when it doesn't include the file extension (.jpg, .gif, or .png, for example). Also, check that the images aren't included in another directory (you're currently looking in the parent directory of the CSS file).
