In the class, "contact-info", you are missing the semi-colon for the list-style property.

I am going to take a shot in the dark and say that you have not declared a background image in the contact-info class and therefore there is no background size it can set.

Yeah, I think Brandon's got it.

The css property 'background' is shorthand for which you only include the one value 'no-repeat'

The shorthand might need to include other values

background: #colour url() repeat position;

or you might need to use a single image property

background-image: url();
