Do you have any plants or grass nearby that she could have eaten? I have 'sacrafice' house plants that are safe for the cats to chew and every now and again one of them will throw up plant material that is green and has green particles in it and is very liquidy. If the liquid is green and not some of the particles then you might want to call a vet and ask them about what it could be.
Many cats will vomit after eating grass as well. I have heard it is an aid to digestion somehow - don't ask me how though:-)! but I do know that mine enjoy grass and they vomit it up afterwards.
Sometimes when a cat has indigestion it will also eat grass and houseplants as an aid to vomiting and getting rid of whatever is not ''sitting right". They do get suprised by it at times and sometimes they do run away and act startled. I usually offer a little petromalt after they have calmed down on the assumption that they may have a hairball stuck and are trying to get rid of it. If they keep vomiting, however, I contact the vet.
If she has eaten and it has stayed down, and if the previous vomitus was just liquidy with green particles, I would keep an eye on her and call the vet in the morning just to see what they suggest. If you think it could be a houseplant, make sure the ones you have accessible to her are 'safe' for her to eat because she may try just because it is there.
Hope she continues to stay well and happy,
