The Play Date Cafe: Splash of Neon, TAWS Be Inspired #33, & (CAS)E This Sketch #38

Just popping in to share a quick card I made for the following three challenges:
The Play Date Café          TAWS Be Inspired #33                CTS #38
I've been wanting to make a card with just stamping alone for a while now, and it felt good to finally make one.  After seeing the TAWS inspiration photo I knew I wanted to make a single-layer card using Good Point from TAWS...I figured it would be nice and graphic and perfect for all that black and white. Then, when I saw this week's sketch at CAS(E) this Sketch I knew it would be perfect for what I wanted to do.  I flipped the sketch, but even then the chevron image I used was a bit large for the sketch, but hopefully you can still see it. Oh, and I promise the yellow looks much more neon in person (which is important since The Play Date Café's color scheme is black, white, and a splash of neon), but I'm barely getting this in before the PDC deadline, so I don't have time to take another photo.  And honestly, this card was just a last minute card just for fun, so I'd rather use the time I have left tonight to make some more cards. :) Hopefully you'll just take my word for it.  Thanks for taking a look! :)
Stamps: Alphabet Soup, Good Point (TAWS)

Ink: Tuxedo Black (Memento), Yo-yo Yellow (SU!)
