The first thing I notice is the local and remote security groups are set as "IP" rather than subnet. A site to site VPN is usually to connect 2 networks not 2 IP's so you need to choose type as subnet and then set the last octet of the IP to '0' such as and to represent it as a subnet. Subnet mask if needed will stay the same;

Following example shows static IP on one end and dynamic at the other, but should give you a good example just use the static configuration types.
