Hey Suzan,

There are a couple things wrong with your CSS code. You're missing a comma in between the steelblue and darkslateblue color stops. Also, you don't have to specify a 0% color stop for steelblue because the gradient automatically starts at 0 unless specified otherwise:

.main-header {
background-image: linear-gradient(to top,  steelblue, darkslateblue 90%);
}
