it happened when i followed the instructions in the video in 4:20

My code:

/************************** GENERAL **************************/

body { font-family: 'Play', sans-serif; }

a { text-decoration: none; }

wrapper {

max-width: 940px; margin: 0 auto; padding: 0 5%; }

/************************** HEADING **************************/

logo {

text-align: center; margin: 0; }

h1 { font-family: 'Changa One', sans-serif; margin: 15 px 0; font-size: 1.75em; font-weight: normal; line-height: 0.8em; }

h2 { font-size: 0.75em; margin: -5px 0 0; font-weight: normal;

/************************** NAVIGATION **************************/

nav { text-align: center; padding: 10px 0; margin: 20px 0 0; color: #ccc; }

/************************** FOOTER **************************/

footer { font-size: 0.75em; text-align: center; padding-top: 50px }

/************************** COLORS **************************/

/* green header*/ header { background: #6ab47b; border-color: #599a68; }

/* nav background on mobile */ nav { background: #599a68; }

/* logo text */ h1, h2 { color: #fff; }

/* links */ a { color: #6ab47b; }

/* nav link */ nav a, nav a:visited { color: #fff; }

/* selected nav link */ nav a.selected, nav a:hover { color: #32673f; }

/* site body */ body { background-color: #fff; color: #999 }

Hey David, you've added the 'color: #ccc;' to the nav as apposed to the footer. Switch them around.
