CSS Tea Cozy issue

Hello everybody,

I’m currently working on the “tea cozy” project, at the end of the layout with flexbox lesson.
I think I’ve done fairly well at finding the reasons of my issues (for once) but I can’t figure out how to center my div with the h2 “our mission”. If my window’s bigger, my image repeat itself. So I tried background-repeat, but then the image and div stays on the left of my page.
I tried justify-content, align-items, text align, the margins etc and to understand where could be the issue but can’t put my finger on it… If anybody can tell me what I’m doing wrong and why, that would be a huge help !
Thanks in advance :slight_smile:

You were on the right path using background-repeat: no-repeat.

To address the positioning try using background-position: ?????.

I’m sure you can guess what you need to write in place of ???.

Hi Winningblue,

Thank you for that, looks fine now !
