Customizing a Genesis child theme

I decided to download the Genesis Metro Child theme. Took a copy of the full folder.
I renamed the copied folder to Custom and the Theme Name information seen inside the top area of the style.css file to Custom. Then adjusted other information as well.

The style.css file.

 Theme Name: Custom 
 Theme URI:
 Description: A custom Genesis child theme
 Author: Paal Joachim Romdahl
 Author URI:
 Version: 1.0
 Template: genesis
 Template Version: 2.0.0
/* Import CSS files */ 
@import url(assets/css/forms.css);
@import url(assets/css/widgets.css);
@import url(assets/css/nav.css);
@import url(assets/css/theme-colors.css);
@import url(assets/css/custom.css);

The functions.php file I changed.

//* Child theme (do not remove)
define( 'CHILD_THEME_NAME', __( 'Custom Theme', 'custom' ) );
define( 'CHILD_THEME_URL', '' );
define( 'CHILD_THEME_VERSION', '1.0' );
