editing acquia theme

For the spotmouth.com site, I started by writing a new theme, but in the end, decided to just edit the acquia theme.  One issue that I had was that this theme uses some background images.  While I could  (and initially did) just edit the images to match the color scheme for my design, it didn't feel right.

I wanted to way a way in CSS to remove the background-image that the theme was setting.  I added the following to my local.css and VOILA, it worked:

 

.preface-top-wrapper
{
background-image: none !important;
background-color:#2D3A4B !important;
}
