Accident Filter. I just hit a car in a parking lot... [mi]

I was backing up and bumped a red car that was parked behind me. I stopped and looked at the damage. Literally, there were no dents or anything like that on the car I hit. There was one scratch about 1.5inches long in the paint which was probably due to me, but could've been there previously. I left a note saying "I bumped your car, please call me if you notice anything." (And my name and number). I took pictures with a PDA, but it was dark and the lighting wasn't too good.
Any tips or anything on what I should do now? How do I deal with the person I hit on the phone? How do I deal with the police if that comes up? With my insurance company? I've never had anything like this happen to me, and I'm pretty freaked out. Thanks MeFi.
