Wrong colour border generated

Tell us what’s happening:
Describe your issue in detail here.

So, I’m trying to complete this challenge to create a green border around an image, however the one issue stopping me from passing the challenge is that for some reason my code is making the border blue rather than green. I don’t understand how this is happening as I have specified for it to be green in my CSS as well as the class in my HTML. Anybody any ideas why this is happening?

  **Your code so far**

<link href="https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Lobster" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css">
<style>
.red-text {
  color: red;
}

h2 {
  font-family: Lobster, monospace;
}

p {
  font-size: 16px;
  font-family: monospace;
}

.smaller-image {
  width: 100px;
}
.thick-green-border {
  border-colour:green;
  border-width:10px;
  border-style:solid;
}
</style>

Challenge: Add Borders Around Your Elements

This is not the spelling used by CSS. You need “color” instead of “colour”.

How silly of me :man_facepalming: Thanks for pointing out!
