Very nice.
Glad Jeff Hollenbeck could ID this lovely creature. My compliments to the photographer on these truly spectacular images. Welcome aboard, Garrett:-)

That is the eye arrangement of the Sac spiders. Several of the Cheiracanthium have some greenish translucent tones.

ok, lets try this again
most definetely NOT a Thomisid. the spinnarets on the abdomen and the elongate abdomen contradict it being a Thomisid. Lynette is most probably right.
it is most probably a Sac Spider.
that is the most beautifully colored non-crab spider i have seen. and you wonder how people dont think they are cute ;). haha

I looked at it too.
I resembles a sac spider, but I haven't seen one like this before.
