Css selectors 4 Whats wrong?

 <!DOCTYPE html>
	<link type="text/css" rel="stylesheet" href="stylesheet.css"/>
	<title>Strut Your Stuff!</title>
	<p>I'm about to become a lovely shade of teal.</p>
	<p>Me, too!</p>
	<p>I think I'll do the same.</p>
		<p>We're going to become a truly striking scarlet!</p>
		<p>I was thinking more vermillion.</p>
		<p>No, crimson!</p>

color: #00E5EE;
div p{
color: #CC0000;
border: 3px dashed;
color: #3a5fcd

Error message is Oops, try again. Did you remember to add a border of color #3A5FCD around every element?

What’s the error you’re encountering?

Right now the only thing I see is you need to add a semi-colon " ; " after “color: #3a5fcd” in your " * " tag.

I’m having the same problem?
Oops, try again. Did you remember to set the color of the paragraphs outside divs to #00E5EE?

@lolman, color: #3a5fcd is the last property, a semi-colon is not required (i would still put a semi-colon for constancy and to reduce mistakes(

@theman25, there are two proper ways to declare border, with the border property or the individual property’s:

border: 2px dashed red;

or individual property:

border-width: 2px;
border-style: dashed;
border-color: red;

color will also color the border, but also the text. The exercise requires you to use either border or border-color, color itself isn’t good enough

I’m sorry, I just don’t see what I’m doing wrong here?

/Add your CSS below!/
p {
font-family: #00E5EE;
div p {
font-family: #CC0000;

  • {
    border: 2px solid #3A5FCD;

you use font-family as property, and then give it a color value, if you give it a color value, i recommend you use the color property as well


Thanks for your keen observation Stetim, it’s been a long day. Really appreciate the help!

Thank you so much. I can finally move on
