What's wrong with this code?

Here's the challenge...

"Challenge task 1 of 1

We have an image file, 'smiley.png', located in the 'img' folder. Add it as an image above the texture background. Set it so that it doesn't repeat, and position it in the top-right corner of the div. Then, add 'img/pencil.png' above the smiley image layer. Set it so that it doesn't repeat, and position it in the bottom-left corner."


Here's my code answer...

/* Complete the challenge by writing CSS below */

.sketch { background: url('img/smiley.png') no-repeat top right, url('img/pencil.png') no-repeat bottom left, url('img/texture.jpg') #EED293; }


It looks ok in the preview window but, guess what I get?

"Bummer! Check the background image values in your CSS."

Where am I going wrong? I begging you, Treehouse community, where?!

Switch the backgrounds order. The pencil.png goes on top.

background: #ffffff url("img_tree.png") no-repeat right top;

This is the correct order for using the shorthand :) Try to figure it out with this in mind. Hope it helps.
