Margined Blister Beetle

What is this bug.
Found him on a butterfly bush in my Mother’s garden. Thought he was a type of Tiger Beetle, but I haven’t found any with this markings in any of the galleries I’ve looked through.

Hi Kammie,
This is a Margined Blister Beetle, Epicauta pestifera, not a Tiger Beetle.
