SASS 6: Variables in SASS


I keep getting the following error message : Did you add a background-color property of .slogan class in main.scss?

It seems like it should be right from what I was able to find here in the help section but clearly it's not because it keeps erroring out on me.

@import url(;
//Add variables here:

h1 {
  font-family: Roboto, sans-serif;
  text-align: center;

.banner {
  font-family: 'Pacifico', cursive;
  height: 400px;
  background-image: url("lemonade.jpg");
  .slogan {
    background color: $translucent-white;
    position: absolute;
    border: 4px solid black; 
    top: 200px;
    left: 25%;
    width: 50%;
    height: 200px;
    text-align: center;
    span {
      font-size: 24px; 
      line-height: 200px;
  border : {
      top: 4px solid black;
      bottom: 4px solid black;

.container {
  text-align: center;
  font-family: 'Pacifico', cursive;
  .icon {
    display: inline-block;
    margin: 2%;
    border: 4px solid black;
    font-size: 32px;


Hey @overlookshiningyahoo,

You have .slogan inside .banner. It belongs outside. This should fix it.


@825orion according to lesson 4, .slogan is supposed to be nested inside .banner, so I don't get what you mean when you say, "It belongs outside." Do I have to make a new, separate .slogan selector?


Hey @jbarks2

Sorry for the late response.

That's correct. When I say "it belongs outside" I mean you should move the .slogan selector outside the .banner selector. Sorry if that wasn't clear.
