Good Morning,  I'm having a problem with my css.

I am setting up a page, that has a border. I have 3 sections of the page.  In each section, I need to display an image in the bordered area.  Right now the image seems positioned correctly, but appears to be behind the border.

Can someone point me in the right direction. I'm attaching an image of what I am trying to duplicate.

-----------------------------------------Current CSS

div.bigdata {
  width:675px;
  border-left-style:solid;
  border-left-color:#c2b38f;
  border-width:40px;
  font:13px arial,sans-serif;
      position:relative;
      z-index: 150;

}
div.side{
width:675px;
background-image:url('bigData_sidelabel_collaboration.jpg');
background-repeat:no-repeat;
margin-left: -40px;
position:absolute;
z-index: 100;
}

div.bigcontent {
  width:671px;
  border-left-style:solid;
  border-left-color:#00713b;
  border-width:4px;
  font:13px arial,sans-serif;

  background:#ccccff;

}

bigdata has a z-index of 150 ... that includes the border.  The element with the image has a z-index of 100 the higher z-Index will always be on top of the lower z-index.
