This is fine assuming you think CO will fold to your 3-bet >65% of the time.
Some will quibble with the check/raise line vs. bet/3-bet. But it's really whatever at that point.

Probably this flop hits villain range so your are going to play for stacks anyway.But if it doesn't hits villains range then a check back from V is possible, and if you don't hit your diamond then you lose equity(and the pot since you are out of position), we don't want that.
So if I were you then my plan will be bet bet shove since you 3b OOP.

Preflop: I really like the 3-bet, but ultimately you're hoping for a fold there...maybe raise a little more if it's not out of character for you or check his 3-bet call % if you have that info.
Flop: Check-raise is tricky and confusing, but at lower limits maybe not the best line. I'd say just lead out next time (2/3 pot) and if he comes over the top, you can re-evaluate. As played, you likely need the flush to win the hand, so it's math from there (which would be a fold).
