'unexpected identifier' in the early 'helper functions' segment. I can't find the problem, could somebody help?

const select = document.getElementById('breeds');
const card = document.querySelector('.card'); 
const form = document.querySelector('form');

// ------------------------------------------
//  FETCH FUNCTIONS
// ------------------------------------------
fetch('https://dog.ceo/api/breeds/image/random')
  .then(response => response.json())
  .then(data => generateImage(data.message))


// ------------------------------------------
//  HELPER FUNCTIONS
// ------------------------------------------

function generateImage(data) {
  const html = `
        <img src =`${data}` alt>
         <p>Click to view images of ${select.value}s</p>
          `;
      card.innerHTML = html;
}

const html = `
        <img src =`${data}` alt>
         <p>Click to view images of ${select.value}s</p>
          `;

Your entire value for the variable html has backticks around it, and you also have backticks around ${data}. Have you tried removing the backticks around ${data}?
