"Make sure you're defining a second box shadow value. Did you include a comma between both values?"

Hi Joseph,

Here is what I did for this task:

/* Complete the challenge by writing CSS below */
.main-heading {
text-shadow: 0 0 5px #be7b31;
}

.title {
text-shadow: 1px 3px 0 #e59740;
}

.main-header {
box-shadow: 0 2px 15px #aaa, inset 0 0 60px 5px firebrick;
}

also for box-shadow and text-shadow you don't have to add "px" after the zeros. The browser assumes that its 0 units.
