Add a box-shadow to a Card-like Element5567

box-shadow: 0 10px 20px rgba(0,0,0,0.19), 0 6px 6px rgba(0,0,0,0.23);

The element now has an id of thumbnail . With this selector, use the example CSS values above ^ to place a box-shadow on the card.

So basically I need to add this box shadow to my element using the id of “thumbnail” but I’m not sure where the box shadow code goes? I tried right after the word thumbnail as well as before it and I also tried putting it in the .fullCard object which will give a shadow around the element but that is not the purpose of this exercise; any help offered is much appreciated.

  h4 {
    text-align: center;
    background-color: rgba(45, 45, 45, 0.1);
    padding: 10px;
    font-size: 27px;
  p {
    text-align: justify;
  .links {
    text-align: left;
    color: black;

  .fullCard {
    width: 245px;
    border: 1px solid #ccc;
    border-radius: 5px;
    margin: 10px 5px;
    padding: 4px;
  .cardContent {
    padding: 10px;
  .cardText {
    margin-bottom: 30px;
<div class="fullCard" id="thumbnail">
  <div class="cardContent">
    <div class="cardText">
      <p><em>Google was founded by Larry Page and Sergey Brin while they were <u>Ph.D. students</u> at <strong>Stanford University</strong>.</em></p>
    <div class="cardLinks">
      <a href="" target="_blank" class="links">Larry Page</a><br><br>
      <a href="" target="_blank" class="links">Sergey Brin</a>

I don’t see the css selector in your code, have you added that?

Hi, ieahleen. Its been awhile since I looked at css but thanks for the hint! Yes i simply needed to add the selector of id which in this case is equaled to “thumbnail”, so I added

    box-shadow: 0 10px 20px rgba(0,0,0,0.19), 0 6px 6px rgba(0,0,0,0.23);

and now it works. I dont know if the pound sign # is always needed for id selectors or if there is another way to write it but this worked for me. Thanks
