trying to create a shortcode in funtions.php to show a featured post..

Everything I have works fine except I can't get the background-image to show the post's featured image...

echo $featured_post_url displays the correct address, but I just can't get it to show as the div's background image...

maybe ive been staring at the computer screen too long... can anybody tell me what i'm missing here?

    function propertunity_featured_post() {
      $featured_post_id = 2860;
      $featured_post = get_post($featured_post_id);
      $featured_post_url = get_permalink($featured_post_id);

      $featured_post_image_url = wp_get_attachment_url( 
      get_post_thumbnail_id($featured_post_id, 'thumbnail') );

      echo "

        <div class='card'>

          <div class='card-header' style='background-color: #f8f8fc; overflow: hidden;'>

            <a href='" . $featured_post_url . "'>

              <div class='card__image' style='background-image: url(' " . $featured_post_image_url . " ');'></div>       

            </a>

          </div>

       </div>";

You can try wp_get_attachment_image_src this for getting Feature Image URL. Here is the Full code.

<?php
function propertunity_featured_post() {
      $featured_post_id = 2860;
      $featured_post = get_post($featured_post_id);
      $featured_post_url = get_permalink($featured_post_id);
      $featured_post_image_url = wp_get_attachment_image_src( get_post_thumbnail_id($featured_post_id, 'thumbnail') );
      echo "<div class='card'>
          <div class='card-header' style='background-color: #f8f8fc; overflow: hidden;'>
            <a href='" . $featured_post_url . "'>
              <div class='card__image' style='background-image: url(' " . $featured_post_image_url[0] . " ');'></div>       
            </a>
          </div>
       </div>";
}
?>
