Puzzle of the Week

I am thinking of one of these five cards:

Which one am I thinking of? Here are some clues:

• The value of my card is a prime number.
• The values of adjacent cards add up to a multiple of 3.
• My card is next to a card which is next to the 2 of hearts.

Here is how to follow the clues:

1. The value of my card is a prime number, so it could have been 7 of clubs, 7 of diamonds, or 2 of hearts.
2. The values of my two neighbours add up to a multiple of 3, so it could have been 7 of diamonds or 2 of hearts.
3. My card is next to a card which is next to the 2 of hearts, so it could only be the 2 of hearts.
