Cassandra,

The error you're getting probably isn't very helpful, but the real issue here is that you haven't yet added a text color, as the instructions asked you to. Include a color property (set to the value of your choosing) and you'll be good to go.

Hey cassandra armstrong,

Everything you have is correct, but you forgot to set the declaration for a text color.

color: #0000ff;
