Validation error don't tell the user what they need to fix it #604

@kyungmin how about this one?
Currently if I input an invalid value it just turns the box red but it doesn't display an error message. If we added something to explain what the error was this would be much more useful. The design of the modal has changed a little since we originally designed this issue but you can work with @dmdj03 to figure that part out.
@kyungmin don't worry about the rest of the modal. that's going to be all updated as part of a general site makeover. For this just focus on the error messages.
for the error messages; the message for the routing number field should be "1231" is not a valid routing number. The message prefix - "Invalid field [routing_number]" should not be shown.
Once you've got it looking correct and are ready for some code reviewing create a pull-request so we can take a look at the changes :)
