CSSBattle | #5 Acid Rain

Welcome to CSSBattle Challenges!

In this short article, I go through my solution for CSSBattle - #5 Acid Rain challenge. Please refer to the code snippet below to get a better insight into my thought processes and the implementation detail.


Acid Rain Challenge


<div class="container">
  <div class="parent">
    <div class="circle top"></div>
    <div class="leaf middle"></div>
    <div class="leaf bottom"></div>

  * {
    box-sizing: border-box;
    padding: 0;
    margin: 0;
  .container {
    width: 100%;
    height: 100%;
    background: #0B2429;
    display: flex;
    justify-content: center;
    align-items: center;
  .parent {
    display: flex;
    flex-direction: column;
    transform: rotate(45deg);
  .circle {
    border-radius: 60px;
  .leaf {
    border-top-right-radius: 60px;
    border-bottom-left-radius: 60px;
    border-bottom-right-radius: 60px;
  .circle, .leaf {
    width: 120px;
    height: 120px;
  .top {
    background: #F3AC3C;
    transform: translateY(35px)
  .middle {
    background: #998235;
    transform: rotate(45deg)
  .bottom {
    background: #F3AC3C;
    transform: translateY(-35px) rotate(45deg) 
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Key Takeaway(s):

  • using flexbox to center children elements vertically and horizontally within a parent container

As always, I welcome any feedback or questions regarding the implementation detail of the challenge. Otherwise, I hope this was useful!
